Sandra Volny  lives and works between Paris and Montreal. Central to her research is the use of aural spaces, which she considers as vectors that allow for individual and collective imagination to emerge. Her projects probe the inherent duality of sound as the intersection of the sonic and the visual. In her work, she portrays spaces and people in situations where the intrinsic process of consciousness is built through sound into the space itself. After completing her practice-based Master’s (MFA) at Concordia University in Montreal, and her research-based Master’s at La Sorbonne, she decided to pursue her studies as a PhD candidate in Sciences, Art and Aesthetics at La Sorbonne. She is a recipient of several residencies and awards for artistic projects and academic excellence, such as the State of Lower Saxony Program for the Promotion of Young Artists in Sound Art, The Study and Research Residency grant from the Île-de-France Region, a project grant from Concordia University, a 2015 HLC Harvard University Travel Grant, a Canada Council for the Arts Travel Grant (2015), and a Quebec Council Grant for Emerging Artists (2015). Her work has been presented and performed at various international venues, including Centre Clark (Montréal, 2016), Dazibao (Montréal, 2016), Raumlabor-267 Quartiere für zeitgenössische Kunst und Fotografie in Braunschweig (2013), the Leonard and Bina Ellen Art Gallery (2011) in Montreal, and Le Cube (2011) in Paris. She is also co-founder of Triangular Project, a traveling collective initiated by the artists Florine Leoni and Macarena Ruiz-Tagle www.triangularproject.net
