Andrea Cormier (b. 1990) is an emerging artist from the East coast of Canada now living and working in Montreal, Quebec. She holds a degree in Anthropology and Japanese Studies, and is currently completing a second degree in Photography at Concordia University. She discovered her love for photography in 2008 when she took her first darkroom class, and has been shooting film ever since. Andrea’s practice includes photography, writing and music. Her work, often autobiographical, explores themes such as memory, nostalgia, home and identity.
Castle-building, an ongoing body of work, is an attempt at revisiting the past and redefining notions of home and family. Working with an accumulation of photographs, the project serves as a visual documentation of memories. It combines photographs of my hometown in New Brunswick with photographs of my new-found home in and around the city of Montreal.
