Vincent Charlebois is an interdisciplinary artist born in Montreal. His creative work revolves around an assembly of disciplines such as performance, text, and media art. His research-creation approach focuses on technological interfaces with nature and human-machine relationships in the context of the dematerialization of exchanges. His works specifically explore themes such as ecosystem perceptualization – achieved through the datafication of environmental interactions – and archive as poetic and political material.

Holding a Bachelor’s degree in Intermedia and Cyberarts from Concordia University in Montreal and a Master’s degree in ecological construction from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona, he has been involved in forest creation in Canada for twelve seasons. He has showcased his work across three continents, and his artworks are archived in various online collections, including on Rhizome ArtBase. He currently lives in Montreal and is an active member of the Hypha workers’ cooperative.

Approach and works on display

La couleur de Montréal (2024)

In La Couleur de Montréal, the artist Vincent Charlebois colors the meteorological dynamics of the city, capturing the sky’s variations through the traffic camera network. Merging images and text, the work creates an urban metanarrative inspired by Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction. This installation, with its evolving nature, transforms the sky into a generative story.

This work by Vincent Charlebois reveals the fluctuating nuances of our urban environment, proposing a temporality beyond human perception. This project focuses on technological tools, envisioned here as potential interfaces with nature, and thus questions our perception of media space as well as its possible interactions with atmospheric conditions.

FIFA takes place from March 14 to 24, 2024.
