Biography

Lucie Rocher holds a PhD in art studies and practices from the Université du Québec à Montréal (2020), where she is currently a lecturer in photography. Inspired by her observation of and interest in urban construction sites at various stages of (in)completion, she explores their details in photographic installations that play on tension and formal balance. She thus builds a photographic construction site in constant evolution, the achievement of which is always pushed back to a later date. She has had solo exhibitions in Montreal (Maison de la culture Janine-Sutto, 2017; Occurrence, 2018; Hangar 7826, 2022), Quebec City (VU, 2018 and 2021), and Gatineau (AXENÉO7, 2020). She has also participated in residencies in Iceland (Sim Residency, 2015), Quebec (Sagamie, 2016 and 2019; L’Œil de Poisson, 2018; Daïmon, 2020), and Japan (Palais des Paris, 2019).
