In 1988, Sylvie Bélanger obtained a bachelor degree in sculpture from the Université du Québec à Montréal. She enrolled in Espace VERRE’s glass program in 1992 and became one of the first Fusion members until 1994. Sylvie’s work, which is frequently shown in Canada and abroad, is strongly inspired by archeology and reminiscent of matriarchal societies preceding the Judeo-Christian era. Some say that her fascination for knives, swords and blades in general has triggered her artistic expression. Since fall 2003, Sylvie teaches sand casting at Espace VERRE.
