Camille de Galbert is a graduate of the Conservatoire National de Région de Grenoble,

France, in contemporary dance (2000). She continued her dance training in New York at The

Merce Cunningham Studio. As a result of a knee injury, she renounced a dance career and

turned her artistic attention to drawing and video projects as a self-taught artist. She then

applied her interests to cinema and moving image techniques at the NY Film Academy.

Camille de Galbert’s art is at the crossroad of multiple disciplines.

Her works on paper are direct and objective extensions of her life; they are not comments,

observations, or judgments; they are remnants of the archeology of her past and spirit. While

her videos offer ethereal ideas of her spirit, these works on paper offer material

testimonies of her actions. In these pieces, her creative intention finds its form in an object

with weight, a time, and a place.

Through the years Camille’s craft has grown to blend moving images into a choreography of

light, music, and words. She carries-out experimental videos impregnated with the

unconscious, the oneiric, her journey as a dancer, as well as her life in the United States,

where movements, expressions, sounds, shapes, and faces collide.
