Eve Tagny’s practice considers gardens and disrupted landscapes as mutable sites of personal and collective memory inscribed in dynamics of power, colonial histories, and their legacies. Weaving lens-based media, installation, text, and performance, she explores spiritual and embodied expressions of grief and resiliency in correlation with nature’s rhythms, cycles, and materiality. This image is taken from a video of the performance Mouvements de vestiges, a work responding to the environment of a neglected third landscape of weeds and concrete blocks where three people enact and alternate between gestures of discomfort, negotiation, and symbiosis. Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based Tagny has a BFA from Concordia University and a Certificate in Journalism from the University of Montreal. Recent exhibitions include Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and Centre Clark in Montreal, and Cooper Cole, Gallery 44, and Franz Kaka in Toronto. She is the recipient of the Mfon grant (2018), the Plein Sud Bursary (2020), and has been shortlisted for the CAP Prize (2018), the Burtynsky Photobook Grant (2018), and the OAAG Award (2020).
