Andrée-Anne Mercier is a multidisciplinary artist based in Montreal.
She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Visual and Mediatic Arts at Université du Québec à Montréal in 2015, her work has been shown in many places in Montreal.
Her practice explores the universe of popular culture and tends to question various aspect of society. The use of mass consumption is a way to question and criticize the subject.
During her residency period, the artist aims to explore the kitsch of the city and country and add it in her work. Playing with the image of kitsch object and environment, she wants to give them life again and play with their status in the world.
