LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
After graduating from the prestigious Swiss University of arts and design of Lausanne, Salomé Chatriot has been working from Paris as a contemporary artist.
As an artist, her work focuses on the creation of physical and virtual spaces: she builds machines and installations where electronic sculptures and digital images coexist. Fascinated by the way science treats body[ies] through data-oriented objectivity, she uses potential futures and new technologies to shape a fluid, digital and precious identity.
In disagreement with the techno-negative attitude, the ecosystems she produces always bear the mark of a certain healing. The well-being she wishes to transmit often involves the real-time diffusion of organic flows such as breathing, circulation of liquids and [al] chemical transformations. In her artistic creations, the process is as important as the result: experimenting and manipulating physical, electronic, digital and virtual materials in the manner of a scientist; with rigour and precision. She began in 2019 a cycle of breathing interactive performances that she exhibited from Sao Paulo to switzerland, passing by France. In 2021 she had her first solo show in a Paris based gallery, New Galery, followed by several institutionnal group shows in Europe. She had been selected for Biennale College arte of Venice Biennale 2022.
"Salomé is a young emerging artist who is experimenting with very innovative materials as they intersect with her own body. She belongs to a long tradition of performance artists who use their own body as a tool of transformation, and I very much look forward to following her brilliant career.”CECILIA ALEMANI, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, 2022 VENICE BIENNALE
