lives and works in Montréal, QC

A graduate in photography at Concordia University (2010), Anne-Renée Hotte completed her master’s degree in visual and media arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal in 2015.


Anne-Renée Hotte's research poetically tackles the modes of communications that are intrinsic to the various living communities, both human and plants. Employing various visual strategies, such as the amplification of flash photography and the play of color inversion during post-production, which bring about an equally incidental and frenzied character to her images, Hotte aims to highlight elements that are often minimally visible. Displayed through the format of installations, the works echo each other while quietly revealing the interrelationship of bodies that move and exchange without the use of speech or sound. Whether through depicting a healthy coexistence of plants communities, or the hasty movements of a crowd during a heavy metal concert, or the symbiosis of trees in a mature forest, Hotte unfolds before the eyes of the viewer the vocabularies of silent communication.

Her work has been presented in several locations abroad and in Quebec, including the Galerie Artem (Quimper, France), the Gallery of the University of Indonesia (Jakarta), Volta NY (New York, United States), Caravansérail (Rimouski), the FOFA Gallery (Montreal) and the Galerie de l’UQAM (Montréal).
