In 1995 Kirouac began boxing at a local Winnipeg boxing club. This decision inspired a grant that took her to Paris, France; Bristol, England; and Rotterdam, Netherlands for over a year, where Kirouac trained and researched her position as a classic boxer. Upon her return to Canada, Kirouac used her own actions and body to create several interdisciplinary works examining stereotypes, sexuality expectations, violence, power and vulnerability.

Competitors is a series of photographs taken in Paris, France of Kirouac's sparring partners.
