Dominique Rey | Untitled #5/ Strangers to Ourselves
2013 | digital print |
Painstaking hand cut images taken from documentation of Rey’s performance practice comes together in her most recent collages to produce something entirely new. Untitled #5/ Strangers to Ourselves combines delicacy with ruggedness, drawing the viewer in to explore the endless details contained within. Dominique Rey is currently showing at Plug In ICA, and her work can be found in the collection of the National Gallery, Ottawa amongst others. She is the recipient of numerous awards including the Canada Council for the Arts International Artist Residency Grant at La Cite International des Arts, Paris.
Dominique Rey is an interdisciplinary artist based in Winnipeg, Canada whose practice spans a number of media including video, performance, painting, sculpture, and photography. Often discussing the representation and embodiment of the “other”, Rey’s work focuses on culturally marginalized subjects and figures and aims to position itself from within the contexts she explores. From her recent work emerges an investigation into the relationships existing between selfhood and the other, engaging the unconscious other within. Rey received her BFA from the School of Art at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, and her MFA in photography from Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson NY in 2007. Rey’s work has been exhibited extensively in both solo and group exhibitions, recently including Erlking (photographs) in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Under the Rose Arch, MacLaren Art Centre, Barrie; and Material Self: Performing the Other Within, Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto. Rey is the recipient of numerous awards and honours, including the Canada Council for the Arts International Artist Residency Grant at La Cite Internationale des Arts, Paris. In addition to her art practice, Rey is a professor in the School of Art at the University of Manitoba.
