The Queen is a character created and performed by Becka Viau.

Starting as an exploration of the artist’s Whiteness in relation to her settler, english speaking, colonial, Canadian identity – this character has reiterated itself through many different mediums and media which has resulted in a sort of collection. The queens collection.

This project is ongoing and continues to be considered a work in progress.
