My-Van Dam is a multidisciplinary artist based in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal. She is also the coordinator of regular programming and technique at La Centrale galerie Powerhouse and has graduated from the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) in visual and media arts. In her artistic practice, My-Van Dam is interested in the transmission of intergenerational traumas, memory, vulnerability, resilience and the healing process. Particularly, she is interested in the consequences of traumatic events on our collective and individual memory as well as the impact of traumas on our physical and psychological health, our interpersonal relationships and our identity. She explores materiality through a variety of mediums and techniques ranging from painting, photography, installation, sculpture and video. Her intention is to expose the vulnerability that inhabits each individual and to demonstrate human complexity through artistic experiences. Her goal is, also, to challenge the spectator on their own condition so that they can question themselves and have a basis of reflection on these themes in order to seek for courage and inner peace. My-Van Dam have participated in several group exhibitions, notably at Patrick Mikhail gallery, at Place-des-Arts in Montreal, at the Musée d'art Actuel/Département des invisibles (MAADI), at the Rad Hourani fondation, at the Cuisine ta Ville festival organized by Quand l’Art Passe à L'Action (ATSA) and at the ArtHelix gallery in New York.
