Arkadi Lavoie Lachapelle holds a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the University of Québec. Her work has been presented in a variety of contexts, including anonymous and clandestine situations, in Québec, Austria, France, Germany, and Spain. Her artistic research is based on the poetic potential of the object and its symbolic and corporal expression of strength and power; as well as on public participation as a collective energy. Through clandestine poetic actions, ephemeral installations in public space and gallery projects, Lachapelle questions and opposes resistance to situations related to productivist ideology.
