Dominic Gagnon

As a filmmaker, performer and artist, Dominic Gagnon works with unconventional images taken from the Internet. Since 1996, his work focuses on various themes: mythologies, marginal production of the image and its censorship, the conditions of mediation between the work of art and its spectator. Gagnon is specialized in collage film, often using found footage as source material for some sharp and tragicomic commentaries on economic decline, identity crisis, chaos, terror and apocalypse culture. Recently retrospectives of his work had been organized.
