Anne-Marie (AM) Trépanier is an artist-researcher and editor.

Through their practice, they explore the specificities of different media, technologies and actions to (re)mediate the narratives that traverse a given situation. Their artistic activities take the form of publications, videos, discussions, websites and exhibitions. They use rehearsal, reappropriation, documentary research, collaboration and listening to challenge the production of power and dominant history. In their research, they pay particular attention to tactics of techno-media resistance and resilience performed by marginalized communities and alternative publics.

AM has participated in research-creation residencies and presented their work in group exhibitions across Canada. Since 2018, they co-edit with Laure Bourgault the journal Cigale, dedicated to the publication and translation of contemporary artists’ writings. Their writings on art and culture have been published in various cultural journals and magazines such as Public Parking, Terms (Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery), OEI, Cigale, Sabir, Spirale, Synoptique: Online Journal of Film and Moving Image Studies, and Architecture | Concordia.

AM is originally from the traditional Anishinaabe territories along the Ottawa River and lives in Tiohtiá:ke/Mooniyang, territories of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation known by its colonial name as Montréal. [Source: VOX, 2022]
