Julie Bénédicte Lambert

Julie Bénédicte Lambert graduated in Studio Arts from Concordia University in 2000 and developed a passion for textiles and paper. To deepen her knowledge of textile building techniques, she completed a DEC at the Centre des textiles contemporains de Montréal in 2013. In the course of her research in the field of weaving, the etymological link between the words (texte in French) and textile has led the artist to adopt paper as a material, which has a multitude of uses. The artist is inspired by symbols of transmission of ideas and knowledge, of nobility and intimacy, which she transforms and weaves to provoke an internal dialogue between substance and form. The artist has already won several prizes and grants, including the Prix François-Houdé 2020 and exhibited her work in Quebec, France, the United States, Ukraine, and Austria.
