Dominique Rey immerses herself in the world she is using as material, whether that means living with exotic dancers in South Carolina for her series Selling Venus/Vénus au miroir, or working on Les Filles de la Croix, a seven year project on a disappearing order of nuns that has taken her to Brazil, Argentina, and France. Her fascination with the representation of the other, the marginal figure, plunges inward in her newest work Erlking to explore the unconscious other within.
Dominique Rey is a multidisciplinary artist working in photography, video, painting, performance, and installation. Her work has been exhibited across Canada and in the United States, Germany, and Slovakia.
