Disciple of light and time traveler, Philippe Léonard explores the interstices, the optical unconscious and the spectral dimension of spaces. Crafting his images using celluloid, analog video and high definition digital technologies, he strives to create a unique hybrid visual matter. His work has been shown in festivals, museums and galleries in Canada, Europe, Asia and the US. He’s been conceiving projections for live concerts with collaborators such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thisquietarmy and Cigarettes After Sex. He is an active member of the Montreal-based experimental film collective Double Negative.
