Originally from Québec City, Samuel Roy-Bois is based in the Okanagan, where he is Assistant Professor of Sculpture in the faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan Campus and heads an interdisciplinary lab for creative exchange called The Research Studio for Spaces and Things. Roy-Bois’ artistic practice involves site-specific installations concerned with the conceptual and material definition of space and the ways the built environment contributes to our understanding of the world. Through sculpture, found objects, photography and sound, Roy-Bois interrogates the relational network of objects and their historical resonance: how do we define ourselves through the creation of structures? Is it possible to conceive of one’s existence outside any material linkage? We make things, but are things making us?
