Montreal artist Lalie Douglas creates objects and installations which question our expectations of how art should behave both inside the gallery and outside in public spaces. Her work has been exhibited in Quebec, Canada and internationally. Her recent projects include Du coin de l’œil (Regina, 2011 and Montreal, 2013), Broken Land: histoires contées et racontées (Laval, 2014) and public art projects such as D’où venons-nous / Où Allons-nous (Mascouche, 2012) and This place was like a home to us (Montreal, 2013) made to honour Thomas Widd and his wife Margaret, founders of what became the Mackay School for the Deaf, a project documented in the film Lost Stories. Her work has been supported by several grants from both the Canada Council and the Conseil des arts et des letters du Québec.
