Statement: Genevieve Pellettier

Tell Me I’m Your National Anthem

Genevieve Pellettier is a Toronto based photographic artist. She works primarily in film photography, including traditional darkroom into her practice. Her first year of university was spent at Parsons The New School for Design, in New York. She has since transferred to Ontario College of Art and Design University to complete her Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Her series, Tell Me I’m Your National Anthem, tackles issues of identity, and how a person’s identity is formed within their home life. With themes of nationalism and patriotism, her photographic work aims to dissect the differentiation between where the American Dream originated, her American Dream and other’s American Dreams. In an attempt to further discover and reinforce who she is, and where she has been, she has photographed in Canadian and American locations.
