Anouk Verviers’ work investigates systems of power through non-systemic processes: processes that are unstable, adaptable, and open to leave space for experimentation, collaboration, and embodied ways of understanding. Using sound, woodwork, ceramic, drawing, archival and everyday materials, bodies, and cameras, she creates performances, installations, videos, sound pieces, and sculptures. Her work aims to embrace complexity and multiplicity, revealing entanglements between ourselves, others, and the matter around us.

Her most recent work explores issues of the exhaustion of the female and non-binary body and aims to prefigure possible practices of care and resistance. This research is rooted in her experience of the chronic pain she lives with. Her previous corpus was researching the obscured history of women’s making of butter in Canada and how this practice was taken over by a profit-driven patriarchal and colonial framework established through a campaign against women's knowledge.

Anouk Verviers is an artist, researcher, and educator working between London UK and Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyang/Montreal CA.

Her work has been presented in artist residencies, exhibitions and community projects in Canada, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. In 2023, she received the ACME Goldsmiths MFA Award for her graduation exhibition. She is a researcher at CRITS, St-Paul University (Ottawa, CA) and initiated, in 2022, the Exhausted Hybrid Feminist Species Reading Group (London, UK).
