Loris Gréaud

Born in 1979 in Eaubonne, France. Lives and works in Paris, France.

 

Loris Gréaud’s polyphonic education included experimental cinema, music at the Conservatoire, a school of graphic arts, the creation of a techno music label, and Cergy School of Beaux-Arts. Gréaud’s experience reflects this: it is curious and conceptual, fuelled by eclectic exploratory fields (linguistics, music, cinema, science, engineering, etcetera) which blend together, creating works-experiences. Synesthetic imagination and poetic transposition are permanent features in his exhibitions: air current architecture, "pink" noise which generates silence, the incarnation of fragrance from the planet Mars, touring sculpture straight out of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, black champagne, sweets with taste which will be invented by everyone, a luminous and sonorous variation about abyssal fish set to music by Anti-Pop Consortium, after having been projected on the huge screens at Times Square in New York, etcetera. With an outstanding flow of multiple means to address the public, Loris Gréaud watches out for what is real, filters it, and dematerialises it, blending references and utopian worlds. "Dream works" or "cloudy narration", Loris Gréaud’s art finally asserts a certain principle of indecision: it is similar to the phenomenon of apparitions or fleeting hallucinations. He questions the very principle of exhibition and has a preference for displaying landscapes forever suspended in a tense spatiotemporal fault.
