Charles-Frédérick Ouellet is a Chicoutimi native who lives and works in Quebec City.
He uses photography to examine representations of memory, historical sites, and identity. At the confluence of documentary and fictional approaches, his work grows out of field work exploring the interconnections between physical spaces, displacements and the construction of the collective imaginary. His work takes multiple forms including conventional photography, video, installation, and artist books.
He has published four photobooks, most recently with Filigranes Éditions. His work has been exhibited in more than fifteen galleries and artist-run centres in Quebec (Galerie Lacerte, VU, Espace F, La maison de la littérature, La Bande Vidéo), Scotland (Street Level Photoworks), and France. Charles-Frédérick Ouellet has been awarded grants from the Quebec and Canada arts councils, and his work is held in multiple private and public collections.
