Alexandre Gosselin (1988) is an emerging photographer and visual artist based in Montreal, Quebec. He studied advertising at Université de Montréal and completed his BFA in Photography at Concordia University. His work has been exhibited in Montreal, at Eastern Bloc and Mainline Gallery in 2016 and at Art Gang Gallery in 2017.
Alexandre Gosselin uses the photographic medium in an open way by exploring collage, virtual reality, installations, data-based processes and video. His artistic work investigates the co-relation between mnemonic processes, language, information technology and identity. More precisely, his work interrogates the human condition in an increasingly symbiotic technocracy and aims at disrupting the truthfulness of the experiential and ontological world. Recurrent themes such as dreams, illusions, the virtual world and mysticism support the artist’s idea that everyone has its personal truth constantly fluctuating within structures of information. The fragile foundations of reality are thus constantly challenged within the artist’s artworks.
