Genevieve Robertson is an interdisciplinary artist with a background in environmental studies, working between place-based, collaborative, and contemplative material processes. Her practice explores elemental, geologic and more-than-human worlds, reckoning with the schism between primordial time and the current moment of frenzied petro-capitalism, climate change and crumbling ecologies. Robertson’s professional work also involves art writing and curation, with a specific interest in rural and regional arts culture and interdisciplinary practice. She is informed by a personal and intergenerational history of resource labour in remote forestry camps all over British Columbia.
Robertson holds a BFA from NSCAD University (Halifax) and an MFA from Emily Carr University (Vancouver). Genevieve is of British and French ancestry and currently lives on the traditional and unceded territory of the sn̓ʕay̓ckstx Sinixt Arrow Lakes and Yaqan Nukij Lower Kootenay Band peoples.
