Charles GUILBERT



Charles Guilbert was born in Montréal in 1964.

Known mainly for his videos, Charles Guilbert first studied literature and explored various forms of expression including song, drawing and writing. On numerous occasions, he participated in the Festival international du nouveau cinéma et de la vidéo in Montréal. During the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois, he was awarded the Prix de la SOGIC in 1991 for best video. His productions were presented in Europe, India and Mexico, as well as at the National Gallery of Canada, at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal and at the Art Gallery of Ontario. In 1998, Charles Guilbert participated in the exhibit known as Les Capteurs de rêves during the first edition of the Biennale de Montréal.

Multitalented, Guilbert also published Les Inquiets (Éditions les Herbes rouges) in 1993 as well as Le beau voyage éducatif (Dazibao) in 2004, a publication in which the artist's writing provide commentary for images produced by Serge Murphy. He most often collaborates with Murphy as well as with Michel Grou, favoring references to daily life, love and the cinema to compose filmed tableaux that are small incursions into daily life and fantasy. Subtle sensory changes permeate his works with an imaginary note that emphasizes his astonishing costumes.
