SABRINA RATTE

visuals for Blue Hawaii, Sat Oct 04

Sabrina Ratté is a Montreal based visual artist whose video work explores the possibilities of mixing together a diverse array of tools and techniques in order to create virtual environments where architecture and landscapes fall into abstraction. Her work is also inspired by the relationship between electronic music and the video image, and she often collaborates with musicians for finished pieces as well as in live settings. Parallel to her solo work, Ratté is the visual part of Le Révélateur, with the electronic music composer Roger Tellier-Craig.

Ratté’s work has be shown in very diverse contexts, including art galleries (online and IRL), music and film festivals such as International Film Festival Rotterdam, Paddles On! (1st digital art auction at Phillips) NYC, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF.), São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound, Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, NYC, Rhizome.org (The download Program), Cell Project Space in London UK, Send+Receive Festival Winnipeg, Elektra Festival Montreal, MUTEK, A/Vision 3, in Montreal, Mexico City and Barcelona. Her videos with Le Révélateur have been released on DVD by the San Francisco Label Root Strata. She received her BFA and a MFA degree in the film Production Program of Concordia University, Montreal.
