Christine Laquet

Through the use of different forms of expression including installation, painting, performance or video, Laquet questions the imagery of savagery, of what remains of contemporary beliefs for each of us and creates familiar bonds between the social sphere and ritual habits. Laquet’s philosophical and poetic approach results with works where tenderness and violence mingle closely.

Laquet’s work has been widely exhibited in France and abroad, with solo shows that include the FRAC des Pays-de-la-Loire; Gyeonggi Creation Center, Daebudo (Korea); Centre d’Art La Chapelle Jeanne d’Arc, Thouars; Centre d’art Le LAIT (Albi); MAMAM No Patio, Modern Art Museum Aloisio Magalhaes, Recife (Brazil), Bangkok University Gallery (BUG), Bangkok (Thailand); Chateau des Adhémar (Montélimar); Centre d’art contemporain de la Ferme du Buisson, Marne-La-Vallée, Zamek Culture Center (Poland), and others.
