I practice my art, as my life, from the location of woman -- white, almost middle-class, middle-aged, single mother with a disability. I use the specific experiences of this location to inform, disrupt or challenge not only the accepted or "normalized" image of Western white woman, but the traditional formal concerns of art. In doing so, I hope to embrace a more inclusive process for living and art making.

Les lieux invisibles will come and go through selected Montreal restaurants. Creator, Andrée Anne Vien portrays cultural diversity from two different angles. On one hand - the discrepancy between immigrant’s perception of their own culture and that particular country’s current cultural references; on the other - visual interpretations of these cultures by means of the artist's own imagination, as well as the movies, and the Internet. Perhaps most importantly though, will be the interviews conducted with foreign nationals, be they owners or clients of participating restaurants.
