Erin Weisgerber


Erin Weisgerber is a Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based artist working primarily with photo-chemical film – as well as video and sound – to produce installations, performances, and short films. She manipulates the photographic, chemical, and material properties of film to transform the world framed through her camera, rendering moving images that exist between figuration and abstraction, external vision and internal landscape.

Weisgerber is a member of the Double Negative Collective, a group of moving-image artists dedicated to the creation and exhibition of experimental and avant-garde cinema and who maintain an artist-run film lab. Since 2019 she is a member of Jerusalem in My Heart a live audio-visual performance project, with Lebanese producer and musician Radwan Ghazi Moumneh.

Weisgerber’s films have screened at venues such as the Karolovy Vary IFF, Ann Arbor IFF, Oberhausen ISFF, CROSSROADS, EXiS, the LA Filmforum, and the Cinémathèque Québecoise; and in installation at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Matadero Madrid, and the Seoul Hall of Urbanism and Architecture. She has performed at venues such as the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art (Porto), Issue Project Room (New York), and the Beirut Art Centre.
