During the months of September and October, you can see Pierre Leichner‘s artworks on display in the Window, an exhibition space at the Roundhouse where Vancouver artists are asked to explore the link between community and creativity.
How long have you been a practicing artist?
I was a psychiatrist and I stopped working in 2010. I went to Emily Carr to get my bachelor’s degree then I went to Concordia University in Montreal to get my master’s degree in Fine Arts. Since 2011 essentially, I’ve switched to full-time art practice.
What is your artistic medium?
I am an interdisciplinary artist. I use a variety of media depending on the topic of research. For the exhibition in the window, the medium is altered books.
