Bienvenue to the Florence Debeugny website

Florence Debeugny is a visual artist based in Vancouver, BC, on the traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. She has exhibited photographs in art galleries, museums and private collections since 2000. Her work has been framed, mounted, installed with found objects, integrated with sound and video, and has also formed part of collaborative projects with other artists.

She focuses her artistic practice on architectural photography of British Columbia’s changing industrial landscape, documenting abandoned or partially run-down structures before they disappear, as seen in At the Edge of Wilderness, Almost Gone – Remains of Cannery Villages and Maillardville 100 years and beyond.
Her work raises questions of progress, architectural preservation, housing and culture. She has also developed a photographic abstraction style, as seen in the series Deterioration, Through, Precaution and Night Language.
