Heidi Barkun’s feminist transdisciplinary practice is articulated around questions of identity, illness, and failure using voice, text, objects and place as means of resistance against normative definitions. Inspired equally by theoretical as artistic research, she seeks to create spaces of conversation about taboo subjects. Heidi has a Master of Arts in Visual and Media Arts and Feminist Studies (UQAM, 2020), a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Concordia, 1999) and a Bachelor of Science (McGill, 1995). She is the 2020 laureate of the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art. Her artworks have been shown in Canada, the United States, Europe and South America, and she has presented her research at academic conferences in Paris, New York, Aalborg, Montreal. She is currently an artist in residence at the McConnell-Université de Montréal Research-Creation Chair on the Reappropriation of Maternity. Heidi Barkun lives in Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyang / Montreal.
