”Saunascapes: Bathing at the Sauna Village”, 2023 / Courtesy of Danielle Raymond

Danielle Raymond began her career as a stone sculptor, but now works mainly with video, photography, and sound. In her artistic practice, she often uses film and photo archives as a material for research. In Espoo, she has been concentrating on a project evolving around the sauna culture.

Raymond holds a Ph. D. (Arts Studies and practices) in 2020 from the University of Québec in Montréal.

In 2019, She published an article Réemployer, Réactualiser: créer les Bruits d’archives, #7 Images en transit: trajectoires et réarticulations [2019]. See:

She presented Noise in the Nordic Archive, an outdoor screening at Lantern at GIV, 4001 Berri, Montréal, in 2018, and at the Bergen’s Public Library in 2016, and at the R3 Gallery in Trois-Rivières, Q.C.  in 2015. She participated at the Rendez-Vous du cinéma québécois 34th Edition in Montréal, at the 19th Rencontres Traverse Vidéo at the Musée des Abattoirs at FRAC Midi-Pyrénées, in Toulouse, at the MUFF Montreal Underground Film Festival, at P’SILO Image Contre Nature 2016 in Marseille, at Annual congress of L’Association des archivistes du Québec and also at the Laboratoire de recherche LLA-CREATIS, at Université de Toulouse Jean-Jaurès in France. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions such as the Biennale Art Exchange at Ryerson University in Toronto and Nuit Blanche events in Montreal.
