An-Laurence Higgins

An-Laurence Higgins (An Yuan 安爰) is a Montreal-based artist and musician whose practice integrates performance and multimedia. Since a marking event that compelled her to re-evaluate the place of her adoption in her life, An-Laurence started to explore her identity through creation and autoethnography to find meaning in her adoption experience. Her artistic process led her to create the interactive multimedia installation Confidences en trois temps (2018) among other works. As a musician, An-Laurence performs on guitar both as a soloist and chamber musician. In 2019, she produced and directed the independant feminist concert projet Émergences (f.pl.). An-Laurence is mostly interested in the relational aspect of art, and is thus inspired by subjects like identity, communication and coexistence.
