    Clédia Fourniau tackles the processual and performative dimensions of abstract painting and questions the context in which one perceives and receives an image, involving the entire body of the artist and of the visitor. The artist works her shapes and her materials through the accumulation and stacking of movements and actions, mixing dyes, inks and polyurethane resins, after which an ultra-brilliant embossing takes over the space of her canvases, mirroring the body, the workshop and the architecture. Engaging in a new vision of reality, the image perpetually forms itself before coming undone and tries to convey a sensual confusion, a message without a message, a form of mystic.

    Clédia Fourniau was born in 1992, in Paris, where she now lives and works. After a three-year program at the school Olivier de Serres, she graduates from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in october 2021, with honors. She will soon take part in a residency organized by the Fonds de dotation Weiss and will be sponsored by Tatiana Trouvé for the Prix Marin 2022.

    Born in 1992.
    Lives and works in Paris.
