Charlotte Clermont is interested in the moving image and the possible connection between the treatment of her materials and the themes which she explores. Working with VHS, MiniDV, Super8 and surveillance camera, the visual quality of her images, often dreamy and misty, tends to capture the complexity of her relationship towards people and her environment. Her videos are part of an oneiric universe and raises questions about her own emotional and psychological development. By reappropriating the image through analog manipulations and distortions, she subtly reveals a fragmented and non-linear narrative thread, where tension, intimacy, mystery and daily life coexist.
Graduated from Concordia University with a BFA in Studio Arts, her work has been presented in Canada and internationally (Biennale Itoshima Arts Farm, Les Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois, Festival Oodaaq, European Media Art Festival, Montreal Underground Film Festival, Antimatter [Media Art], WNDX Festival of Moving Image, Les Percéides). She has participated in audiovisual performances in Montreal (Nuit Blanche, Suoni Per Il Popolo, Jeunesse Cosmique, mercredimusics, Montreal Electronic Groove) and Kuala Lumpur (KLEX Experimental Film, Video and Music Festival). Her videos are distributed by Videographe, Video Out and Winnipeg Film Group. In 2018, she will be an artist in residence at Fusion Gallery, in Italy.
