Myriam Laplante is a Canadian artist born in Bangladesh, now based in Bevagna, Italy. She lives in a state of permanent doubt. Her work in performance, installation, video, painting, sculpture, drawings, etc., is a parody of the world, cynical and absurd, melancholic and disorienting, that often emanates from a bizarre and fantastic imagery.
She has been working with the performance collective Black Market International since 2001. Over the years, she has shown and performed in numerous venues, from squats to museums in America, Europe and Asia.
Her works are in the collections of the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna and MACRO in Rome, in the Musée national des beaux-art du Québec (Québec), Musée National de la Photographie, (Ottawa, Canada), Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington), and in major private collections.
