Born in Montreal, Canada in 1974, David Altmejd now lives and works in New York City. Altmejd received his BFA from Université du Québec à Montréal in 1998 and MFA from Columbia University in 2001. He represented Canada at Venice Biennale in 2007. Altmejd creates highly delicate sculptures that blur the boundaries between the interior and the exterior, between surface and structure, and between figurative representation and abstraction, with a surprising range of materials and objects.
