My-Van Dam is a multidisciplinary artist based in Tiohtiá: ke / Montreal. She graduated from the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) in visual and media arts. In her artistic practice, she is interested in the transmission of intergenerational traumas, memory, vulnerability, resilience and the healing process. She is, particularly, 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. Dam explores materiality through a variety of mediums and techniques ranging from painting, photography, installation, sculptural 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 his 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. I have participated in several group exhibitions, notably at the Patrick Mikhail gallery, at the Place-des-Arts in Montreal and at the ArtHelix gallery in New York.
