Based in Qatar, Guillaume Rouseré (°1977, France) explores the relationship between modern society and natural ecosystems linking to culture and history.
He has contributed to a wide range of projects from exhibitions to art installations and formats including an exhibition of sound sculptures which some have been presented in 2022 at the UNESCO HQ in Paris, an Immersive installation using Multi-channel Audio for Qatari Photographer Khalid Al Thani presented in M7 in Doha in 2022, or sound compositions for the Mix Media Artist and Curator Saida Al Khulaifi presented in NYC in 2021.
He took part in an Artist Residency at the Doha Fire Station 2018/2019 (Qatar) in which he produced a series of sound installations inspired by Dhows, and developed a series called Sound Fossil Sculptures. Both projects were exhibited at Doha Fire Station, Garage Gallery. In October 2019, Guillaume presented a solo Show “Mono P Coco” exploring an intimate moment between the artist and his daughter across different mediums. June 2020 “Allow Me… ” a public artist piece commissioned by Qatar Museum Authorities and Qatar Rail for the commemoration of the 3rd year anniversary of the blockade of Qatar. The sculpture is located in the central metro station M’Sheireb in Doha.
In Sept 2022, with "The World as We Know It is Changing" Guillaume presented one of his most meaningful and deep works. This immersive quadrophonic sound installation was presented at the Mathaf Museum of Modern Art in Doha. This installation presents a quadraphonic sound composition assembled from personal field recording and also includes a live projection of cymatics which were developed during the Alumni artist residency at the Doha Fire Station. This deep listening experience explores the struggle of preserving nature in a world getting more and more urban. It is also underpinning the fragility of fresh water as a natural resource.
