Amélie Proulx explores the very properties of clay and challenges the limitations of the medium in her work. While soft, mutable clay becomes static and permanent when fired, Proulx delves into the idea that the object can slip back into a soft state through technology. She creates sculpture that represents this “slippage” in both language and nature. She received her BFA at Concordia University, Montreal (2006), and her MFA at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (2010). She has completed residencies in the US, Denmark, The Netherlands, Quebec, and Belgium, to name a few.
