Sylvaine Chassay, 201

For more than 20 years, Sylvaine Chassay has been working at the crossroads of contextual and participatory art, inspired by new medias. Multiform, her work takes the shape of installations, in-situ and in-socius interventions, as well as performative actions. Our Western human condition and its evolution are the central point of her preoccupation. She observes, scrutinizes and questions our lifestyle, our contradictions, and our collective and individual values, including herself in this process as much as her peers.

Mathilde Geromin aka lamathilde is a French-Canadian video/performance/sound artist based in Montreal. After her studies in Film and a Master’s in Linguistics, lamathilde returns to her first love: sound and images. Her work explores identity through genre and sexuality.
