Bio


            Guillaume Saur is a visual artist based in Montreal that probes his environment and collects an emotional and topographical selection of it through photography.

            While exploring the notion of physical and digital territories, he experiments with visual installations and composes with the materiality of his surroundings by creating a segmented world of images within a third idealized space.
           
            His work aims to reconnect emotions and personal experiences in visual intentions through a colourful obsession and intents to redefine the line between what is personal and what becomes collective.
