Hugues Clément

Since winning the SAT’s Bourse Euterke (Montreal) contest as an emerging VJ in 2011, audiovisual artist and vj Hugues Clémenthas further refined his very singular, dichotomy-dismantling approach through performances at MUTEK (CA), Igloofest (CA), Circle of light/Moscow light festival (RU), FICFA/Moncton (CA), LPM (Eindhoven (NL) edition) and showcased works in Beijing (CN), Brussels (BE), Paris (FR), Seattle (US), Buenos Aires (AR) and Madrid (ES), among others.

Informed by studies in electroacoustic (University of Montreal) and compositional work for contemporary dance, Clément comes at creation with scrupulous artistic deliberations; by audiovisual performance, composition, VJing and installation, Hugues Clément attempts to capture today, questioning digital manipulation, formalism, and relationship between audio/visual , creativity/technology and public/art of today. He won the 1st place for the Crystal Interface, international audiovisual contest held by Mutek and Elektra (EM15 festival) held at the museum of contemporary art of Montreal (MACM) in 2014.
