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.
