After obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual and Media Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM), creation has always been a starting point for Véronique Buist to realize various projects. Being involved in different backgrounds such as graphic design, publishing, cinema and event design, her interest for all art forms had quickly turned into a multidisciplinary tool. Since her graduation, the artist completed several exhibitions, solo and collective, in addition to managing artistic events. Born in Montreal, the artist currently work and live in Paris. She reinterpret everyday rituals and try to make them more delightful and intelligent using illustration, photography, collage and writing.
In L’Imposture series, photographs whose context is unknown are trafficked through painting, drawing, cutting and embroidery. This gesture is a personal and subjective translation of the collected images. By modifying the memories of others, all notions of interpretation, memory and time effects are challenged. This impostor role brings out new stories by generating a different point of view of the same situation.
