Artist Talk: Thursday, March 28, 5:30pm, Conway Hall 156
Ratté lives and works between Montreal and Paris. After a BFA and MFA in Film Production at Concordia University in Montreal, she focused mainly on video as a medium. Her interest in early video art led her to work with analog technologies such as video synthesizers and video feedback. Later, she integrated 3D animation into her process, allowing for more complex imagery while creating a timeless aesthetic. From utopian architecture to painterly textures, she investigates the fine line between the virtual and the physical realm.
This exhibition features two bodies of work: Biomes and Machine for Living. Biomes is a series of 4 paintings in motion inspired by surrealist landscapes of Tanguy and Kay Sage. Machine for Living investigates the architecture of the new towns (Villes nouvelles) and brutalist buildings in the surroundings of Paris. Come experience these incredible works for yourself!
