Eve Tagny

Eve Tagny (born in Montreal, Canada; lives in Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyang / Montreal, Canada) is interested in nature, especially the cycles, rhythms, forms, and materials through which it is modulated. Combining performance, video, and installation, her practice unfolds around the figure of the garden—a space that she sees as both natural and theatrical, based in power dynamics and colonial histories. Steeped in meticulous research, her works explore colonialism, corporeal sovereignty, labour, and desire, in order to debunk the hegemony of Western narratives about the idea of nature. Gesture occupies a central role in her practice, activating rituals of commemoration, interpretation, or transmission that challenge the histories and skills in which our conceptions of nature are rooted.
