Lucie Laffely

Xénia Lucie Laffely (b, Morges, Switzerland, based in Tiohtià:ke/Montreal) has a background in fashion design, french literature, art history and feminist studies. She combines the traditional language of textile work with the contemporary aesthetic of digital photoshopped painting, creating hybrid pieces that question hierarchies between art, design, and crafts. Through the creation of fleshy and seductive textile pieces, her practice playfully interrogates issues related to digital culture, vanity, domestic space, failure, consumerism and lesbian love. 

Recent solo exhibitions include presentations at Bradley Ertaskiran (Montreal), Eastern Edge Gallery (St-John’s) and Kunstraum Niederoesterreich (Vienna), CHUV (Lausanne). Recent group exhibitions include Museo dei Cedri (Bellinzona), the Nieuwe Instituut (Rotterdam), the Centre National d’Art Graphique Le Signe (Chaumont), Kunstraum Niedereoesterreich (Vienna), and Galerie Last Tango (Zurich), among others. Laffely was the 2019 recipient of the Swiss Design Award, and a finalist for the 2020 Swiss Art Award.
