Guillaume Maraud

Born in 1988 in Bordeaux

Lives and works in Paris

Guillaume  Maraud

Guillaume Maraud develops his work in a spirit of winter romanticism in which cultural mediums provide the codes of a new generation of vanities. By creating various series of inert objects and images, he replays a mass dysfunctional empathy. Post-conceptual gestures place his work in an irresolute state between the construction of form, the desire to produce, and their impossibility. From the financing of the object for which we are being solicited, to its production and reappearance in different states, everything acts.

Born in 1988 in Bordeaux, he now lives and works in Paris. He studied law at Université de Bordeaux, then studied at ENSAPC in Cergy. 

He is represented by Bel Ami in Los Angeles (USA) and Édouard Montassut in Paris.
