Marie-Soleil Provençal is a visual artist from Québec, currently in Nova Scotia. Her work addresses the relationships that we have with our surroundings, an eco-system composed of humans and non-humans. She does so by integrating mundane materials such as concrete, hay, and second-hand furniture, into her sculptures and installations. She has been a studio assistant, a technician, and a professor in visual arts for the past few years from Québec to Newfoundland. More recently, she worked as a research assistant to repurpose plastic beach trash and explore alternative sustainable materials made from local resources such as seaweed, oyster shell, and wood ash.
