Lumière Noire

« Clarity is not born from what we imagine being clear, but from what we become aware of the dark. » -C. Jung

Lumière Noire (Tanya Dolbec’s artist name), originally from Quebec, began her entry into art by practicing dance and painting. She completes several trainings that lead her to obtain a bachelor’s degree in choreography at the Université du Québec à Montréal. She then defines her choreographic aesthetics and artistic vision, influenced by two philosophers: Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustave Jung. Lumière Noire is her current artist name. Always passionate about the visual arts, she directs her attention during her studies to photography and video.

Collaborating with several dance artists and musicians, she then develops her desire to produce performative installations. Her research in movement leads her to a completely different universe where the camera becomes the body of creation.
Having enriched her skills in art analysis, semiology, telepresence and cinema, she now focuses her career on video and photography.

Self-employed, she now offers diversified services in several fields. A multidisciplinary artist, she is now perfecting her video editing practice through multiple specialized training courses.

Tanya Dolbec, a movement artist, now deploys her art with the goal of reaching individuals through accessibility and sensitivity to her environment.
