Sébastien Cliche

Sébastien Cliche is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Montreal. For the past twenty years, he has produced installations as well as textual, video and sound works. The devices he creates explore the question of control and its social and psychological implications. His work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions – notably at the Centre d’art contemporain de Meymac (France, 2008), L’Œil de poisson (Québec, 2010), Momenta Art (New York, 2013), CIRCA (Montréal, 2015), Le Lieu (Québec, 2017), AXENÉO7 (Gatineau, 2019), as well as in established festivals such as MUTEK (Montréal, 2005 and 2010). In 2012, he received the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art. In 2014, he launched La doublure, a publication about the project of the same title presented at the Galerie de l’UQAM (Montreal, 2012).
