Joy Boissière

Joy Boissière is a non-binary artist based in Tiohtià:ke/Moonyang Montréal. Inspired by ecosystems, movement, the asburd, and rave culture, Joy explores digital and performing arts. Their practice links light effects, video projection, material recovery, and dance. The surfaces of creation are eclectic—trees, glass, neon, bodies. It is an exploration of the sensitive, an observation of the different relationships of scale, of the divergence of perspectives.

Holding a Masters degree in digital creation from l’UQAT, Joy has been exhibited at l’Écart in Rouyn-Noranda, held a residency at the Sudbury Alternative Art Fair, and has performed at the Entractes festival in Montreal. They have worked with the Ampleman Dance company and created the visual design for the play Ciseaux presented at the Espace Libre theatre. Finally, Joy is involved in Montreal’s cultural scene, as co-president of the board of directors at Ada X, by giving trainings at Vidéographe, and by creating with their collective CrocoDealDunil.
