Department of Art Visiting Artist Lecture Series- Sabrina Ratté

Sabrina Ratté: “Machine for Living”

“The lecture will focus on my most recent video work contextualized within the evolution of my process over the years. I will present an overview of different inspirations, discuss my approach with analog and digital video, reflect on the potential extension of video in the context of presentation, and I will talk about the different themes contained into my work such as architecture, utopia and dystopia, the real and the virtual.” – Sabrina Ratté

Sabrina Ratté is a video artist based in between Montreal and Paris. Her practice investigates virtual environments generated by analog technologies. Electricity, as raw material, is sculpted, transformed and altered digitally to be reborn as luminous and vibrating architectures. Her videos exist between abstraction and figuration, utopia and dystopia, architecture and landscape.

Her works include installations, prints, sculptures and live performances. Previous exhibitions: Dolby Gallery (San Francisco), Young Project Gallery (Los Angeles), Whitney Museum of Art (NYC), Paddles On! 1st Digital Art Auction at Phillips (New York), HEK (Basel), EMPAC (Troy), Museum of the Moving Image (New York), International Digital Arts Biennal – Bian (Montreal), PHI Center (Montreal), Arsenal (Mtl), the Lampo series (Chicago), Atonal Festival (Berlin), Elektra, MUTEK (Mtl, Mexico, Barcelona). She is represented by the Laffy Maffei Gallery in Paris.

Special thanks to the Department of Cinema Studies for their support.
