Winner of the New Media Production Grant for Young Artists offered by the Caisse populaire Desjardins du Mont-Royal.

Résonance visuelle is a sculpture installation and an interactive video, generated through a collaborative exploration of sound as a visual concept. A multimedia artist mainly interested in human psychology and a sculptor who animates still lifes join their forces to create an interactive sculpture and video installation combining the human body and an object. The project makes visible the movement of sound propagating through space like gas. In this sensory exploration, technology and matter are united through the fusion of the artists’ respective practices.

Josée Brouillard

Josée Brouillard is a media artist. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University (2012) and, prior to this, a DEC in Theatre Production (Collège Lionel-Groulx) and in Photography (Cégep du Vieux-Montréal), where she began exploring lighting and staging. Her education has led her to explore materials and lighting (and light as material) though the use of various modes of transmission and display technologies. She pushes the limits of video by deconstructing its communication devices and re-envisioning the experience of the viewer, always keeping the body present as a source of the image. She has presented her work in Montreal (OBORO, Studio XX, International Digital Art Biennial (BIAN), Eastern Bloc) and abroad (InShadow Festival in Lisbon, Portugal). In addition to her work as an artist, Brouillard works as a multimedia technician in local artist-run centres and is a board member of Eastern Bloc. She lives and works in Montreal.

Steffie Bélanger

Born in Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines in 1989, Steffie Bélanger is completing a BFA in Studio Arts (major in sculpture) at Concordia University. Her sculptures revisit the medium’s traditional materials as well as some of its mechanical subtleties. She is a board member of the artists’ centre Praxis Art Actuel and of the Concordia Sculpture Association.
