Showcase: Anne-Renée Hotte

Through her video and photographic work, Anne-Renée Hotte offers a new vision of romantic landscape – grand, even sublime – in which an imagined family saga is played, smoothly unfolding its story before our eyes.

Issues of family and filiation are fundamental to Hotte’s artistic practice, where the landscape becomes a symbol of both identity and time passing-by, visible through the cycle of seasons, projecting these actions in an ideal, fictional space, beyond times. The artist develops a multitude of small, slow-paced symbolic actions from which emerges a visual poetry that sees her protagonists perform sorts of rituals.

Anne-Renée Hotte lives and works in Montreal. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Photography from Concordia University and is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts and Media Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).
