Claude Périard

Residence: Montréal, Canada

An eclectic and eternally curious being, Claude Periard belonged at first to the musical world. Through studies in classical piano, her interest for sound as a medium was awoken. She has released a dozen music albums, has published essays, short stories and poems in independent publications, and exposed paintings and sculptures. In 2013, she began a Bachelor’s degree in electroaccoustic studies at Université de Montréal and orients increasingly her practice towards new medias such as video, sound art and multimedia installation. Multiform cyborg creature, always eager for more exploration, it is the desire to EXPRESS that fuels her politically, philosophically and feminist-charged work.
