Philippe Leonard

 
 

Philippe Leonard, filmaker sperimentale vive e lavora a Montreal. La sua pratica artistica si concentra sulle immagini fisse e in movimento utilizzando cinema, fotografia, performance e installazioni. Impegnato sul piano teorico ed estetico, indaga sulla temporalità ed i suoi rapporti con i supporti materiali che la manifestano nelle forme di rappresentazione cinematica. La sua particolare sensibilità lo porta ad esplorare la dimensione spettrale degli spazi fisici, adottando una forma di cinema documentario espanso. La sua opera è distribuita da Light Cone e CFMDC, ed è stato presentato in contesti internazionali di primaria importanza: alla 16° WRO media Biennale (Polonia), Rotterdam International Film Festival (Olanda), Anthology Film Archives (New York), Galerie Michel Journiac (Parigi), Festival du nouveau cinéma (Montreal), EXiS Experimental Film and Video Festival (Seoul), European Media Arts Festival (Germania),Museo Nitsch (Napoli), Struts Gallery (New Brunswick). Dopo la laurea in Film Production conseguita alla Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, ed il Master in Fine Arts alla Concordia University con il supporto della Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council del Canada, ottiene nel 2013 la prestigiosa residenza al MIT-Media Lab studiando con Harun Farocki. E' membro del Double Negativedi di Montreal e del Millennium Film Workshop di New York City.
