Sabrina Ratté is a Canadian artist living in Montreal. Her practice focuses on the multiple manifestations of the digital image: analog video, 3D animation, photography, printing, sculpture, virtual reality and installation. The constant integration of new techniques allows her to explore the themes that run through her work in ever-changing forms: the influence of architecture and the digital environment on our perception of the world, the relationship we have with the virtual aspect of existence, the fusion between technology and the organic world. Her works are situated halfway between abstraction and figurative, landscape and architecture, and on the thin line that separates the real from the virtual.
She has been nominated for the Sobey Arts Award in 2019 and 2020. Her work has been presented internationally by several institutions including the Centre Pompidou (Paris), Arsenal Contemporary Art (New York), Laforet Museum (Tokyo), Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, PHI Center (Montreal), Whitney Museum of Art (New York), Chronus Art Center, (Shanghai), Museum of the Moving Image (New York). Her work can be found in the institutional collections of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montreal, and Hydro-Québec. In the spring of 2022, the Gaîté Lyrique presents her first major solo exhibition.
