Charline Dally

Charline Dally is an artist living between France and Quebec. Her practice combines analog video signals and computer-generated imagery through films, installations, and performances.

Her work has been presented at MOCA (Toronto), MAJ (Joliette, QC), FIFA (Montréal), Les Abattoirs (Toulouse), CTM festival (Berlin), and Fresnoy (France).
