Graduated from Concordia University with a Major in Film Animation and MFA in Studio Arts - Film Production option, Guillaume Vallée is interested in radical 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, usually with found-footage, often resulting in surreal and chaotic imagery. Vallée is exploring the possibilites of magnetic video tape and creates hybrid video and performative work based on the materiality of these analogue supports. As a member of Montreal's artists collective groop*index, he's activly involved in events organization that bring forward the idea of hybridity, acting as performer, installation artist and experimental film & video director.
