Melanie Bernier is a multidisciplinary artist living in the Boston area. Her preferred mediums include second-hand clothes and fibers, music, writing, trash, performance, aerobics, and social practice. Punk and DIY principles are deeply embedded in all of it . . . for better or worse.
Her work has been used to raise funds for NoDAPL, Planned Parenthood, Ladyfest Boston, the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, and Girls Rock Campaign Boston. Her non-profit work includes canvassing for marriage equality and working for artists with disabilities.
She stopped making trash in 2013.
