Zachary Ayotte is a Canadian artist living in Edmonton, AB.

Ayotte’s practice is interested in the intersections of body and place, and how these points of confluence shape what is revealed and what is obscured. Drawing on elements of power and identity, he combines elements of performance, installation and cinema to build worlds intended to be witnessed primarily by the camera. Through the use of light, surface and form, Ayotte allows bodies and forms to occupy spaces in a manner that interrupts reflexive perception.

Ayotte graduated from the University of Alberta with a BA in Art and Design and studied photographic technology at the North Alberta Institute of Technology. He has participated in select solo and group exhibitions in Canada and Europe.  Most recently, he collaborated with sound artists Nulle Part to create a site specific installation at the Art Gallery of Alberta.
