Laveen Gammie

Biography: 

Laveen Gammie is currently based on the unceded Lekwungen territory and is in her 5th year at the University of Victoria completing a double major in Bio-Psychology and Visual Arts. Gammie’s scientific practice focuses on factors that change our bodies chemical composition, and how these changes effect our perception, behaviour and personal thoughts, and ultimately how such simple changes have the ability to alter an individuals personal experience. Much of her artistic practice stems from subjects she’s reading/researching about that take on new narratives when applied to situations around her.  Her work often explores themes of dualistic identity, vulnerability, and challenging both self limitations and the limitations created within our social zeitgeist.
