Jérôme Havre is a Toronto based artist whose practice concentrates on issues of identity, communities and territories, investigating the political and sociological processes of contemporary life as they relate to nationalism in France and Canada. Havre adopts a multidisciplinary approach in his exploration of these themes and their attending questions; he uses myriad tools and methods to make tangible the conditions of identity within situations of social transformation. For him, the use of a technological process is not only to accomplish a specific task, but a necessary form of expression in and of itself. He has been awarded several grants from the Canada Arts Council, Quebec Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council and he received travel grants for Germany, Spain, USA and Martinique. Jérôme completed his studies at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Since 2001 he has exhibited his works in Europe, Africa and North America.
