Born in 1962, Danielle Lamontagne lives and works in Montreal. She holds a bachelor's degree in graphic design (1996) from the Université du Québec à Montréal, where she also completed a master's degree en Arts et lettre, with a concentration in interactive multimedia (2000).
A visionary, Danielle Lamontagne is one of the precursors of the use of digital technology in art creation; videos, animations and digital works printed on paper. The virtues of these mediums were still underestimated by the arts community at the end of the 1990s. She did not hesitate to also use multimedia platforms for the distribution of her works (cd-rom, internet). She then innovated by creating virtual galleries for several of her exhibitions (digital and animated images). These digital platforms (internet) will mainly be used by the artist from 2000 to 2015 for her diffusion. Digital works and immersive media installations are very present in her current career. They include projections, videos, digital images, sounds and complementary objects. Light, textures and movements are omnipresent, cohabiting with multiple materials, materializing a reflection and a conceptual approach.
From 2000 to 2018 she participates in several group exhibitions: in 2015 at the Ward-Nasse Gallery, New York, USA, in 2017-2018, she creates an ephemeral sculpture for the city of Sorel-Tracy in collaboration with the artist Peter Gnass and participates in 6 exhibitions at the POPOP CIRCA gallery with the NPO Art session Mtl, of which she is one of the co-founders. More recently she participated in a group exhibition in the contemporary art space Occurence (Art Session Mtl).
