Emmanuel GALLAND

Born in Romilly, France, in 1966, Emmanuel Galland has lived and worked in Montréal since 1990.

Adopting both the practical and theory, Emmanuel Galland is very involved in the cultural milieu of Québec. He developed several exhibitions as curator including Les Bricolos (with Nicolas Baier) at the Clark in 1998 and L'effet du logis, at the Studio Cormier in 2002. He has also worked as a coordinator at Montréal's Vidéographe. His works were shown during the Mois de la Photo de Montréal in 1995 and at the Biennale de Montréal 1998. Personally and individually, he has shown his works at the Séquence Gallery in Chicoutimi and at the Centre d'exposition Plein Sud in Longueuil.  Winner of the Bourse Duchamp-Villon in 1997 and of the Bourse René-Payant in 1995, he was also awarded the Prix Pierre-Ayot in 1999. Recently, he had a show at the artists-run center Le Lobe in Chicoutimi and was curator of group exhibition at Atelier Punkt in Montréal. In 2010, he is curator of the Roadsworth  exhibition On&Off at Atelier Punkt.

Through his photographic manipulations, Emmanuel Galland promotes a meeting of the familiar, the common and the bizarre. He explores human relations and their representations in images by using family portraits or photo-booth that respects anonymity. Preoccupied by a certain form of art domestication, he reveals invisible experiences among family members and friends through a serial and object treatment of the portrait. A fragmentation of body and soul is also a constant throughout his work where humour and denunciations intervene.
