Within animated dreamscapes, women and bears wander, searching for the experience that will define being. A contemplation of the trivial that seeks to decipher the sublime, Elise Simard's films are as much about light, textures, and sound as they are about narrative. Existing on the edge of consciousness, they rely on experience and sensations to tell their story, forever looking for an expression of the unknown.
Born and based in Montreal, Elise has contributed visual signatures for shorts and features. Her practice is about building form and content from shared processes and cross-pollination.
