Image of the work Ceux et celles qui écoutent les baleines / Whale Listeners by Maryse Goudreau

Maryse Goudreau (born in Campbellton, Canada; lives in Escuminac, Canada) probes social, political, and environmental issues through works that navigate among photography, sound art, performance, installation, and film. She is interested in what has been relegated to the margin of official history as she creates narrative, pictorial, and literary spaces to bring these to light. For almost ten years, she has been fascinated by belugas, and has reconstructed their social and political history by creating a vast archive—a dataset and multiple art projects—devoted to these white whales.
