My art is informed by a curiosity towards slowness, tenderness and beauty found in the mundane. I currently locate my practice in Fluxus and Relational Art ideologies, uncovering artfulness in what is ordinary. Over the past year, the pandemic has highlighted the importance of developing an art practice that establishes connection. In such an isolating time, it is a critical moment as an artist to make work that brings people together, in real time or in virtual space, or by means of relatability. I strive to generate visual content that opens up opportunities for viewers to relate to their surroundings and one another. Looking forward, I aim to work collaboratively within various communities - prompting social interaction and participatory engagement to inform the making of artwork.
selina latour is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyang / Montreal. She aspires to create connections across mediums such as drawing, textiles, performance and video. A theme that runs throughout each material she engages with is nostalgia, as she attempts to access the subconscious memories that have shaped her identity. Collaboration is also at the heart of her practice, informing the artwork made during a number of artist residencies attended in Nova Scotia, Iceland (with Mea Bissett) and Portugal (with Justine Latour). She obtained her BFA at NSCAD University and is currently a graduate candidate in the Fibres and Material Practices program at Concordia.
