Yudi Sewraj was born in Georgetown, Guyana, and has lived in Canada since 1975. He currently resides in Montreal, which he has called home since 1993. Between 1992 and 2002 he has developed a body of short experimental videos. His work has explored ideas of “authenticity" and the particular relationship between the camera and the subject. His recent work uses installation as a means of generating both content and structure for his single channel work. Two installations completed during his MFA at the University of California (2005), San Diego employ this approach: Monologue Table - Rehearsal for an Apology (2003) and A Cold Night in February (2005). His most recent work “Salon” (2007) was presented at Articule gallery in Montréal. He teaches filmmaking and media studies at John Abbott College.
