Noémie da Silva loves photographs, obsolete technologies and new digital media. Using images and objects, found or invented, she remodels reality by creating small stagings that question our relationship to photography and its game of illusions. Her artistic work probes the photographic medium and its products to address overconsumption and overproduction of images in everyday life.
Holding a Master's Degree in Visual and Media Arts from UQÀM (2008) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts, major in photography from Concordia University (2005), Noémie also received several honors (FQRSC and CIAM scholarships, The Gabor Szilasi Prize). Her work is represented by La Castiglione and is part of private and public collections including the City of Montreal and the HBC Foundation.
Noémie is actively involved in the network of artist-run centres. In the absence of a centre dedicated to photographic production in Montreal, she co-founded in 2012 le Cabinet, espace de production photographique, that she coordinated until 2015. In 2016, the centre joined Atelier Graff to became L’imprimerie, centre d’artistes, where she is still involved and creates her artistic work.
Noémie was born in 1975; she is based in Montreal, Canada.
