BIO: Isabelle Clermont holds a Master of Visual Arts degree from Laval University in Québec, Canada. She is a multidisciplinary and performance artist and creator of immersive worlds, and her projects offer, in particular, a polyphony of senses through the creation of intimate and sacred spaces of meditation.The artist’s work has a strong relational aspect and is largely based ona quest for humanity and offering, transcendence and transgression, embodied through animposing presence. Isabelle Clermont’s installations express a ‘total art’ that evolves within the paradoxes of strength/fragility and different states of metamorphoses that are characterized by the simultaneous use of numerous media (drawing, sculpture, video, sound). She is inspired by the purity and organic quality of gesture and thus creates a sensitive contact with the spectator – andin order to be at one with the present moment, she uses ritual and repetitive gestures as important elements in her creative process. Imbued with a powerful intensity in her performances, the artist sculpts the matter of sound, imparting to it the same visceral quality as visual matter, both of which contribute to the creation of space.
