Born in Quebec in 1980, Yann Pocreau lives and works in Montreal. Through photography, he has become interested in the strong presence of place and subject, their intimate cohabitation, and their effect on the narrative framework of the images. Pocreau has participated in several Canadian and European exhibitions, includingQuébec Gold presented in Reims in 2008; Exercices d’empathie presented at Espace Bortier in Brussels; Expansion at Galerie de l’UQAM; Out of Grace at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery, and recently within the framework of Montreal’s Mois de la Photo. His work has been documented in a variety of magazines (CV, Canadian Art, Spirale, OVNI, Next Level-UK, etc.) and is featured in the collections of the National Bank of Canada, Hydro-Québec, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d’art de Joliette, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec’s Prêt d’œuvres d’art, and in several private collections.
Yann Pocreau’s 2 months residency (April-May 2013) is supported by Le Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec (CALQ).
