Nicolas Gourault

Nicolas Gourault is an artist and filmmaker based in Paris (FR) with a background in visual arts and visual studies. He has worked with Forensic Architecture before graduating from Le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts. His work is imbued with this double training, navigating between online open-source investigations and the critical use of new media as documentary tools. His films and video installations explore the power relationships embedded in technologies and tries to build counter-narratives through the use of situated testimony and experimental image making. His artworks have been exhibited in venues such as Centre Pompidou (FR), the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien (DE), Hartware Medien KunstVerein (HMKV) (DE), Ars Electronica (AT), la Cité internationale des arts (FR) or LOOP Barcelona video art fair (ES), but also in film festivals such as Cinéma du Réel (FR), Hot Docs (CA), Sheffield Doc Fest (UK), Festival Nouveaux Cinéma (CA).
