Étienne de France (France)

Etienne de France (1984) is a french artist living and working in Paris. He studied Art History at Sorbonne University in Paris and Visual Arts at Iceland Academy of Arts in Reykjavik.

Unfolding his practice in a multidisciplinary and fragmented way, Etienne de France explores the relationships between notions of nature and landscape. Through the fields of sciences and architecture, Etienne de France create works using a variety of media such as video, writing, photography, sculpture and drawing. From a questioning on landscape as a space of imaginary and emancipation, he elaborates fictional and narrative maps.
Composed of serial elements, each project is the result of a long-term development, forming the visible bodies of his work. This process allows integrating the possibility of a dialogue between the exhibition’s space and the work, but also through the involvement of many ramifications, to extend the work, and to place it in a space for critical dialogs.
