My-Van Dam is a multidisciplinary artist based in Tiohtiá:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal. Dam graduated from the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) in visual and media arts. She is also a member of CODE BLANC collective alongside artist Stanley Février and Maryam Izadifard, a collective that is interested in institutional criticism and issues of inclusion in the art world. In her artistic practice, she is interested in the transmission of intergenerational trauma, memory and in the healing processes. More specifically, her work explores the consequences of traumatic events on our individual and collective memory, and the impact of trauma on our physical and psychological health, on our interpersonal relationships and our identity. Through the use of a variety of mediums and techniques (painting, photography, sculpture, installation and video), Dam seeks to expose the vulnerability that inhabits each individual and to demonstrate human complexity through artistic experiences. Its goal is also to challenge the spectators on their own condition so that they can question themselves and have a basis for reflection on these themes in order to seek for courage and interior peace. She has presented her work at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d'Actuel/Département des invisibles (MAADI), Place-des-Arts de Montréal, the Rad Hourani Foundation, Projet Casa, Art Souterrain Festival and at ArtHelix gallery in New York.
