Ingrid Bachmann

Visual Arts

Montreal visual artist Ingrid Bachmann uses both outdated and advanced technology in her work. Symphony for 54 Shoes, which was exhibited in Quebec City (2008) and Regina (2006), incorporated tap shoes and computer technology, while Memo, which was seen in both Montreal and Belgium in 2007, used Post-It notes and a pulley system. Using an endlessly innovative variety of textiles, she creates visually rich, immersive, and interactive environments. She has had solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the USA, Belgium, Peru, and England. Also a writer, Bachmann has been published in numerous anthologies, catalogues, and journals such as Fiberarts and Cube Magazine. Born in Southern Ontario, she has made Montreal her home since 1993 (with the exception of a two-year visiting artist position at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1995). She chose Montreal for its French culture, public spaces, affordability, and great arts community. (PF)
