Geneviève Cadieux (Canadian, b. 1955) is a photographer based in Montreal. Often cinematic, she incorporates audiovisual elements into her large-scale installations. Cadieux’s work explores topics of identity, gender and the human body, presenting the body as a landscape, focusing on small details (such as a mouth, bruise or scar) in extreme close-ups. Cadieux is also interested in the way that art integrates into the urban environment. Many of her works are currently installed in public spaces. Cadieux holds a BFA from the University of Ottawa and teaches studio art at Concordia University. She is the recipient of the 2011 Governor General’s Award for Visual and Media Arts.
