Bio

Following a very conscious departure from architectural academia, Rhayne Vermette (b. 1982, Notre Dame de Lourdes, Manitoba), figured a distinctive craft within the construction of images through film and photography. Primarily self-taught, and under the influence of post-war Italian architects, Vermette’s work is ignited by themes from the Decadent movement as well as notions of the indeterminate. Her artistic practice comes into focus through a volume of analogue moving images works exceeding over 20 short films. These films have screened at innumerable occasions including the Images Film Festival, Jihlava International Film Festival, Festival du Nouveau Cinema, European Media Arts Festival, DOXA, Melbourne International Animation Festival, and so on…

Rhayne is part of the WNDX Collective in Winnipeg, Manitoba and has been programming for their festival since 2014.
