Canadian. Born in Sherbrooke, Canada (1968).
Lives and works in Montréal, Canada.

Best known for her delicate work of embroidery on paper and photographs, Nathalie Grimard explores the themes of fragility and the ephemeral. She is particularly interested in the notions of memory, dream and in-between state.

Grimard is interested in the moments when time is suspended and where the body – or the mind – is without attachment or support, vulnerable. Her refine drawing line turns out to be an embroidered thread on canvas or paper, creating simple shapes reminiscent of childhood memories or mandalas made from the broken thread of her deceased father’s pajamas, which she has patiently undone. Nathalie Grimard seeks to make tangible the process of memory that oscillates between the truth, the constructed and the imagined.
