Instructor: Guillaume Vallée
Graduated from Concordia University with a Major in Film Animation and a MFA in Studio Arts - Film Production option, Guillaume Vallée is interested in radical forms of animation and analogue techniques as a way of considering the direct interaction between different mediums. His work is an exploration of materiality within the creative process. In attempts of creating a more complex relationship with his subject matter, Vallée makes use of cross-medium forms that range from camera-less techniques to optical effects and found-footage, often resulting in surreal and chaotic imagery. Vallée is now exploring the possibilites of magnetic video tape and creates film/video hybrid and performative work based on the materiality of these analogue supports. His work has been shown internationally in film and video festivals, galleries and concert venues. As a member of Montreal's artists collective Groop Index, he's activly involved in events organization that bring forward the idea of hybridity, acting as performer, installation artist and experimental film & video director. Guillaume Vallée's doing a PhD- Études et Pratiques des Arts at UQAM.For more information, or to register, contact us at 514-845-7442 or [Masqué].
