International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

With the help of visual, sound and kinetic devices, Jean-Pierre Gauthier blends chance, control, disorder, chaos and happy accidents in a truly poetic fashion. His installations roll out sounds and shapes in a sprawling and invasive way; rather systemic than robotic, his pieces are designed as interconnected and reactive systems, with the audience acting both as trigger and source material. His work has been showcased at a number of events dedicated to digital art, namely Transmediale (Berlin, 2006), Electrohype (Lund, 2006), Tonspur (Vienna, 2010), FILE (São Paulo, 2012), International Triennial of New Media Art (Beijing, 2014) and Elektra (Montréal, 2019). He also participated in solo and group exhibitions in the Americas, in Europe and in Asia. Gauthier received multiple awards, namely the Sobey Art Award in 2004, the Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award in 2006 and the Louis-Comtois Award in 2012, and is represented by Montréal art gallery ELLEPHANT.
