Étienne Tremblay-Tardif develops a spatial practice that deploys mechanical and digital reproduction techniques. Along a materialist perspective, he engages sociopolitical and economic texts, textures and contextures. The notions of information and display, ornementation and decoration, circulation and use, frame his interests for architecture, material culture and printed forms.
He completed studies in art history and film studies at Université de Montréal (BA 2006) as well as studio arts at Concordia University (BFA 2009, MFA 2013). Since 2015, he combines his art practice with teaching (Concordia University, University of Toronto, Collège de Valleyfield, Cégep de Chicoutimi).
