Jean-François Cantin

Jean-François Cantin is a Canadian pioneer in the media of video and light installation. “For more than twenty years, I have been interested in how image media – photography, film, video – condition our perception of reality. In my installations, I use mechanisms derived from image procedures that are situated as metaphors for perception and its psychic processes. With this approach, I make installations that operate on our perceptual mechanisms, formal processes that produce perceptual experiences. In my practice, the phenomenon of perception is at the heart of an ontological exploration: perception as a phenomenon that mediates the human being.” (Artist’s text.)
