About the artist                        CV                        Exhibition History

Faith La Rocque is a multidisciplinary artist living in Toronto and exhibiting internationally. She received an M.F.A. in Tapestry from Edinburgh College of Art (2006), and a B.F.A. in Art History and Studio Art from Concordia University (2004). La Rocque’s practice includes installation, sculpture, drawing, writing, photo- and video-based work, as well as performance and collaboration.

Since 2007 she has appropriated alternative health practices and products in artworks that investigate themes of belief, ritual and consumption in relation to the pursuit of health and “wellness”. La Rocque establishes active environments that allow for critical awareness, sensory experience and physiological engagement.

Recent group exhibitions include Star Project, Minokamo Woodland Gallery, Minokamo, Japan (2011), Ineffable Plasticity: the experience of being human, Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto (2011), Friends of Freheit, 24 Eagle Street, North Adams, MA (2012) and High Acceptance, YYZ Artists’ Outlet, Toronto (2013).

La Rocque has received numerous grants and awards, notably from the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, and Canada Council for the Arts, and was awarded Joseph S. Stauffer Prize by the Canada Council for the Arts in 2010.
