Multidisciplinary artist and cultural worker, Marie Pierre has a dual training in crafts. After her studies at Espace VERRE and at the Montreal Centre for Contemporary textiles, she founded her company – MP Daigle textile & glass. For 20 years, she has been a proud ambassador of fine crafts and has worked in the artistic sphere in sculpture and fashion design. She is passionate about manual skills and the transmission of knowledge.
Marie Pierre Daigle explores curved universes with porous and fertile borders. These textile and glass creations present his reflections on matter: in fusion, organized or intertwined; sometimes incorporating metal rods, pieces of wood or found objects. She combines, amalgamates and assembles materials to open spaces, create volumes, sketch shapes and delve into the complexity of a detail, of an emotion. His sculptures depict life: life to live, life to give, life to share. At the same time, transparent and full, fragile and resistant, soft and rough, her creations speak of desire, of fragility, of encounters.
She presents her work in various recognized venues in Quebec, France and the United States. His pieces are part of public collections such as those of Loto-Québec and the Musée des métiers d’art du Québec as well as private collections in Canada and internationally. Annually, she creates contemporary fashion accessories presented at events and in shops specializing in crafts.
In 2014, Marie Pierre moved to Kamouraska, an inspiring place where she landed with her family. As soon as he arrived in Bas-Saint-Laurent, his involvement was marked in the community; including a large-scale exhibition with two textile artists for the Centre d’art de Kamouraska, the co-creation of the Portfolio culturel du Kamouraska and the co-founding of Kollaboration a creation seminar. She is involved with the women of the Cercle de fermières de Kamouraska and since 2017, she has participated in Moi à l’Œuvre, a creation program for young audiences imagined and overseen by the Centre d’art de Kamouraska.
In recent years, she has been at the general direction of Métiers d’art Bas-Saint-Laurent, a structuring and dynamic organization in the sector. Stimulated by artistic encounters and exchanges, she is a committed artist who cares about the cultural development of her host region and the influence of fine crafts in Quebec.
