Étienne Boulanger’s research challenges the relation between the human and his spatial positioning system. Placing his unstable body in the space in a precarious and disordered way, the artist establishes a utopian and unstable marking system. Using rudimentary instruments such as the pendulum, the winch and the pulley, combined with imaging and sound technology, he extends or modifies his body, becoming himself an extension of the poetic movement.

Étienne Boulanger teaches at the Collège d’Alma and is also a member of the artist collective Cédule 40. His works have been exhibited in galleries, events and festivals in Canada, Singapore, Indonesia and China.
