Sylvie Chartrand

Sylvie Chartrand is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Montreal. She approaches the human figure in relation to other forms of living things, arousing ambiguous imagery through the intermingling of their analogous features. Taking advantage of the phenomenon of pareidolia, she shows the body through its shadow, sharing in its contours its identity with that which is foreign to it. Her photographic series, video installations and performances have been shown in international exhibitions such as Taking Care at the Ars Electronica in Linz (2018), Le Rêve des formes at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2017), Temps d’images at Usine C in Montreal (2008) and Territoires de l’image at the Musée des beaux-arts de Tourcoing (2007). She holds a Master’s degree from the Studio national des arts contemporains Le Fresnoy (2002) and a PhD in artistic studies and practices from the Université du Québec à Montréal (2018).
