1965 Montreal, Canada


Born in 1965 in Montreal, Sophie Jodoin lives and works in Montreal. 

Sophie Jodoin’s practice questions the manifestations of the feminine, the intimate, loss, absence, and language. Her current and past research probes the relationships maintained in the plural identity dimension of the body, whether cultural, political, material, visual or written. The fruit of her research led her to a more conceptual approach to the body as subject and drawing as practice through installation, collage, photography, text, video and re-contextualization of found objects.1 

She has collaborated with several writers, poets and playwrights including Wajdi Mouawad, Michael Ondaatje and Christian Lapointe. 

In 2017, the artist was awarded by two prestigious prizes: the Giverny Capi- tal Prize and the Louis Comtois Prize. In addition, in 2017, she initiated a three- part retrospective entitled «Room (s) to move: je, tu, elle» which is presented by EXPRESSION, the MacLaren Art Center and the Laurentian Museum of Contempo- rary Art. In 2019, she received a research and creation grant dedicated to visual artists, awarded by the Canada Council for the Arts. 

Sophie Jodoin’s work has been presented in Canada, the United States and Europe, in museums, artist centers, public and private galleries, as well as at in- ternational fairs, such as: Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Québec (2019) , Musée d’art contemporain des Laurentides, Saint-Jérôme, Québec (2018), Ma- cLaren Art Centre, Barrie, Ontario (2018), Centre d’exposition de Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec (2017), Toronto Book Art Fair (2016), Battat Contemporary, Montréal, Qué- bec (2015).
