Sandra Volny

Sandra Volny is an artist-researcher, founder of Sound and Space Research. Her research in contemporary and sound art has led her to develop and deepen, in the recent years, a set of theoretical works, artistic experiments and group workshops. She has led research groups in Chile, Greece and Canada in collaboration with artists, scientists, architects, anthropologists, choreographers and musicians. In her projects, she is particularly interested in these occurrences where the intrisinc process of consciousness is built through sound into the space itself. She recently completed her doctorate in art sciences and aesthetics at the University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne by conducting her research on the « Surviving Aural Spaces ». Her work in installation, sound, video and performance has been presented, among others, at the Centre d’exposition de l’Université de Montréal (2019), Galerie Michel Journiac (France, 2017), Ionion Center for the Arts and Culture (Greece, 2017), FOFA Gallery (2017), Dazibao (2016), Centre CLARK (2016) and Raumlabor-267 Quartiere für zeitgenössische Kunst und Fotografie (Germany, 2013). Volny has received grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Quebec Centre for Biodiversity Science. She is currently in residency at the Darling Foundry until 2022.
