Experimental filmmaker, video artist and independant curator, Guillaume Vallée graduated from Concordia University with a Major in Film Animation and MFA in Studio Arts - Film Production option. He's interested in alternative forms of moving images in analogue forms as a way of considering the direct interaction between different mediums. His work is an exploration of materiality within the creative process. In attempts of creating a more complex relationship with his subject matter, Vallée makes use of cross-medium forms that range from camera-less techniques to optical effects, glitch, video feedback, resulting in expended & hybrid pieces.
Vallée is questionning the notions of recycling & reappropriation, treating all material as found footage within a collaborative practice, in film, video & performance. His audiovisual performances have been shown in various festivals in Canada, USA and France (MUTEK, O.F.N.I., FICFA, Les Percéides, (...)) and his experimental films and videos, distributed by Vidéographe, Winnipeg Film Group and Video Out, have been screened internationnaly. His short film, Le bulbe tragique (2016), won the ''Best Canadian Work'' at WNDX (Festival of Moving Image).
Guillaume Vallée's completing a PhD in Études et Pratiques des Arts at UQAM, under the direction of Louis Jacob & Mario Côté. His Research-Creation thesis is about the notions of DIY apparatus, scene and the artist as bricoleur, around the practices of experimental cinema.
