Sabrina Ratté


The masterclass establishes links between Sabrina Ratté’s recent creations like «Floralia» (2021), «Objets-monde» (2022), and «Inflorescences» (2023), the latter being showcased in the REFRESH #5 exhibition. Exploring the convergence of technology and biology, the interplay between materiality and virtuality, and the speculative evolution of our environment, installations delve into the intricacies of the Anthropocene concept. Deeply influenced by the realms of science fiction, philosophy, and the theoretical writings of influential thinkers such as Donna Haraway, Michel Serres, and Henri Bergson, Ratté portrays a world devoid of humans, where forgotten remnants continue to evolve and forge new relationships with the ecosystem. Through a fusion of aesthetic, poetic, and philosophical lenses, her work emphasizes intuition, reflection, and emotional connection as a means of engaging with these issues.

Sabrina Ratté, a Canadian artist based in Montreal, explores the diverse forms of digital imagery. Her practice encompasses a wide array of mediums, including analog video, 3D animation, photography, print, sculpture, virtual reality, and interactive installation. By continuously incorporating new techniques into her work, she delves into themes that include the influence of architecture and the digital environment on our perception of the world, our relationship with the virtual aspects of existence, and the convergence of technology and nature. Her work has been exhibited in institutions such as the Laforet Museum (Tokyo), the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Chronus Art Center (Shanghai), and the Museum of the Moving Image (New York). She has presented solo exhibitions at Gaîté Lyrique in Paris and Arsenal Contemporary Art in Montreal and New York. Notably, her work is part of the collection at the Montreal Contemporary Art Museum. Ratté was longlisted for the Sobey Art Award in Canada in 2019 and went on to receive the award in 2020.
