Nathalie Bujold

Nathalie Bujold is a major artist in experimental video creation in Quebec. Since her third film, Onelie de l’Oneli (2002), she has continuously explored the alignments and happy connections that can exist between textile art and videographic creation. Woven structures, stitches, interlacing, modular variations, and pattern inversions are all analogies that can be associated with embroidery, weaving, or quilting. – Fabrice Montal, Cinémathèque Québécoise.

Nathalie Bujold is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Montreal. A founding member of l’Oeil de Poisson in Quebec City. Self-taught in video, trained in music, and holding a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the Université du Quebec à Montreal. Nathalie Bujold tinkers, edits, weaves, and brings together various skills to intersect, particularly in her practice of moving images related to textiles. She proceeds like a handyman whose projects take shape as the patterns form. She “works with” images from life, which have a universal character, then catalogs moments that can always be useful, archiving fragments of memory in the manner of a quilt maker. Her work has been presented at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, La Cinémathèque Québécoise (Montreal, Canada), Vidéochroniques (Marseille, France) and the Art Gallery of Guelph (Ontario, Canada).
