Pauline Curnier Jardin
SOLO - Booth 0/6/1
Through drawing, performance, music, installation, and film, Pauline Curnier Jardin crafts fictional adventures full of chance occurrences and wonders, that nonetheless carry with them the potential for mishap or misfortune. Through lighting, color, texture, costume, soundtrack, and props, she creates transgressive, funny, and highly stylized visual settings that owe more to theater than to conventional narrative cinema. Curnier Jardin's stories reveal a fascination with monsters, decorative objects, and animals, although her work expresses a particular awareness of the roles women have played in mythology, folklore, and conventional narrative cinema, roles that are commonly stereotyped as saint, witch, mother, or mystic.
Pauline Curnier Jardin (b. 1980, Marseille, France), lives and works in Amsterdam and Berlin. Has been part of the 57th Venice Biennial, Viva Arte Viva, Arsenale (2017), Frieze Film 2017, London (2017), Tate Modern Cinema Program, London (2017), the IFFR, Rotterdam, NL (2017), Performa15, New York, US (2015), and did residencies at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam (2015 -16), Villa Arson, Nice (2014).
