Martine Birobent

Martine Birobent was a prolific artist, living in a small town in Quebec. She worked in many mediums – clay, stone, fabric – whatever material or found objects captured her interest. She established La Gallerie des Nanas in 2011 for the purpose of exhibiting the work of ‘insubordinate’ women artists, that is, artists working on the margins of the contemporary art world. Her artwork addresses women’s issues, particularly those who are at risk in society.

Sadly, Birobent passed away in 2016.
