Marie-Andrée Godin was born in Canada and works between Canada and Finland, where she now lives. She completed an M.F.A. at Laval University, in Québec, where she was granted several scholarships, including the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (Joseph-Armand Bombardier Fellowship). In the past years, she was also the recipient of working grants from, among others, Quebec City (Première Ovation), CALQ (Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec), Canada Council for the Arts, and TAIKE (the Arts Promotion center of Finland). Her work focuses on the figure of the witch as a feminist figure and explores the concepts of a-hierarchy, craft, holistic and anti-anthropocentric thinking and knowledge as a source of power. She is now trying to see how magic, post-capitalism and diverse political forms or systems can be intertwined to manifest the future. She conducts this research under the title WWW³ (WORLD WIDE WEB / WILD WO.MEN WITCHES / WORLD WITHOUT WORK) more thoroughly as a doctoral candidate at Aalto University (Finland) since 2018. This doctoral research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Her work is mainly based in the fields of installation, performance art and socially engaged practices, and has been shown so far in Canada, the United States, Japan, Finland and Italy.
