Bertrand Carrière

Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) Residency

Bertrand Carrière is a Canadian artist, best known for his landscapes, documentary photography and series that explore photographic narration. During his long career, Bertrand has created a variety of photographic works through an exploration of memory and history. He is interested in the contamination between cinema and photography, exploring the relationship between the still and moving image.

He worked as a stills photographer for motion pictures for a number of years, and has also directed two documentary films and produced two video installations. His latest book, Le Capteur was published in 2015 and he is currently working on Solstice, a monograph of 40 years of photographic works due out in 2020.

Bertrand Carrière is represented by the Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto and the Simon Blais Gallery in Montreal.

Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ), Canada

In 2008-2009, in partnership with Québec's Ministry of Culture and Communications and the Ministry of International Relations and the Francophonie, and on the recommendation of Arts Council England, Conseil des arts et des lettres (CALQ) approached Acme to establish the Québec Studio in London, thereby expanding the network of residencies offered abroad to Québec artists and writers. The residency provides two six month long residencies per year in Bow, E3 for artists who have at least 10 years' experience of professional practice. Applications and selection are undertaken directly by CALQ.
