Matthieu Brouillard

Matthieu Brouillard is a visual artist who was born in Montreal. After painting and drawing for some years, in 2003 he shifted to photography with the impression that this medium would be more appropriate to convey the images he had in mind. Since then he has been creating photographs and video installations that combine the documentary and the “mise en scène”, often drawing on themes and stylistic traits from mythology and the pictorial tradition. His work reflects his interest in the human figure, mostly masculine, which he frequently depicts under constraint or in clear deviation from certain aesthetic and social norms. He has published three photobooks – Narragonie, Darkness Implacable, and Coming Through the Fog (with D. Cumming). Shot over a period of two years, Regarding Gravity is his first film.
