> DESCRIPTION

High Acceptance is the newest installation in Faith La Rocque’s ongoing body of work investigating themes of belief, ritual, and consumption in relation to the pursuit of health and “wellness.” The title originates as a term used to describe the efficacy of a given alternative health therapy. La Rocque continues her work with materials such as Himalayan salt, copper, and scent to establish an active environment that allows for critical awareness, sensory experience, and physiological engagement.

FAITH LA ROCQUE received an M.F.A. in Tapestry from Edinburgh College of Art
(2006), and a B.F.A. in Art History and Studio Art from Concordia University, Montréal (2004). Recent group exhibitions include Star Project, Minokamo Woodland Gallery, Minokamo, Japan (2011), Ineffable Plasticity: the experience of being human, Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto (2011) and Echo Dell, Narwhal Art Projects, Toronto (2012). La Rocque has received several grants and awards, including the Joseph S. Stauffer Prize awarded by the Canada Council for the Arts (2010). La Rocque is a multidisciplinary artist living in Toronto and exhibiting internationally.
