Born and based in Montreal, Gab Bois is a multidisciplinary artist, practicing sculpture, installation, design, and photography.
Gab Bois’ work is particularly interested in the surreal quality of everyday objects. Influenced by childhood experiences of playing pretend, she brings a distinct fantasy to her body of bizarre tableaux and whimsical props. Her unique visual language, informed by design, fashion, pop culture and advertising approaches the mundane with a sharp sense of humor. As a true baby of the selfie era, self-representation is a recurring theme in Gab Bois’ work, and incites a feeling of closeness and relatability to her audience. It is with this particular intimacy that she transports us to a world of her own in which cocktail dresses are made out of scrabble tiles and clam shells can double as pocket mirrors.
Her portfolio also extends beyond personal projects and Gab Bois has worked in collaboration with several international brands, including Balenciaga, Nike, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Jacquemus, Marc Jacobs and Mercedes-Benz for artistic and promotional content, and was featured in multiple shows and publications (VOGUE, ELLE, Dazed, i-D and more). She came out with her first photo book titled ‘New Album’ in the fall of 2020.
