Mylène Michaud

    Textile artist Mylène Michaud (Quebec City, QC) is interested in fibres for their strong historical and symbolic charge, but more specifically for their singular materiality. She completed a BFA at Université Laval (Quebec City, QC) and a specialization in textiles at Cégep Limoilou (Quebec City, QC). In her work, she combines computer image processing, jacquard knitting, and quilting techniques to create large knitted fabrics based on satellite images. Although she uses ancestral techniques such as quilting, her subjects remain quite modern, usually referring to the various technological changes happening in the world. Mylène Michaud exhibited her work in several group and solo exhibitions throughout the province, including Centre MATERIA (Quebec City, QC).
