About

Mélanie Saumure is a visual artist who studied cinema at Concordia University in Montréal, and both documentary filmmaking and photography at Ryerson University in Toronto. By blurring the line between fiction and documentary, she likes to tell stories and to delve into different types of memories. Working across film, photography, artists’ books and print making, she uses archival and found material to explore the space between the personal and the impersonal, and to create new narratives. She lives and works in Tiohtiá:ke / Montréal, and she is currently pursuing her studies in the Print Media department at Concordia University.
