Karoline Georges

Karoline Georges, born in Montreal, Canada, is a digital artist and writer who first trained as a contemporary dancer before studying interdisciplinary art, cinema and art history. Influenced by transhumanism, her artistic research is guided by her quest for a different kind of sublime — a polymorphic, hybrid sublime. Taking the form of video installation, 3D modeling, literature, sound and virtual photography, her works are populated by digital avatars, clones and networked consciences; through them, she seeks a digital form of transcendence, poetry and spirituality.

 

She has exhibited works throughout Canada, Europe and the Americas (FILE Electronic Language International Festival in Brazil; Athens Digital Arts Festival; Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin; International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Cartagena; Vancouver Visible Verse Festival; Over the Real Festival Internazionale di Videoarte en Italy; ORANGE, Contemporary Art Event of Saint-Hyacinthe; Biennale internationale des poètes en Val-de-Marne; Mois de la Poésie; La Bande Vidéo and Festival Voix d’Amériques).

 

Her poetic project LANDMARKS was part of Lumen Prize’s 2017 longlist (UK). In 2012, she received the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec’s prize for artistic creation. In 2016, she won the Futurefest Art Prize (London, UK). 

Her latest novel, The Imago Stage (De Synthèse), has won several honors in French, including Canada's most prestigious honor, the Governor General's Literary Award.
