Patricia Langevin is an emerging multidisciplinary artist and member of the Pekuakamiulnuatsh First Nation. She is currently completing her B.A. in visual arts, new media program, at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. She has participated in group exhibitions at the Musée Ilnu de Mashteuiatsh since 2022, including Atashpishinanu / Seconde peau (Second skin), also presented at the Pulperie de Chicoutimi in 2023-24. Her first exhibition was a duo with Raphaelle Langevin, Aianishkat / De génération en génération (From generation to generation), presented at the Musée Ilnu de Mashteuiatsh in 2023 and at the Musée des Abénakis d’Odanak in 2024. In 2025, she will present her first solo exhibition in blown glass.

Notably, she has received three grants from the Canada Council for the Arts under the Creating, Knowing and Sharing program in 2022 and 2023, and from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec in 2023. Her committed approach denounces inequalities and issues affecting Aboriginal peoples in particular. Through her work, she delves into the exploration of identity via her own mixed identity as a Québécoise and Innu woman.

Approach and works on display

Atik (caribou) j’ai le cœur brisé (2023)

Atik / Caribou adresses the pressing need to take action for the caribou, which are threatened with extinction, and denounces the absurdity of governments in dealing with this issue, which directly affects the Innus and their way of life. For 20 years, the government has overlooked the recommendations of the Innus caribous specialists and guardians for thousands of years. The fragile balance of the environment is under threat, symbolized by blown-glass caribou footprints within the artwork. If they break, the caribou could also disappear.

“Its footsteps, once criss-crossing the vastness of Nitassinan, are hard to see today. Its habitat violated, soiled and denatured, the call for help from its protective people is ignored. The sacred animal that has shared the history and way of life of the Innu for thousands of years is now extinct.
Atik is dying
Atik breathes his last
It breaks my heart”.
