Agathe Simon is a French artist, born in 1977. She lives and works in Paris. She is a Ph.D. holder from Sorbonne University and from Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP). She is frequently invited abroad for creative residencies.
Since 2008, Simon has created a cycle comprising of fictional characters. Her scope is to explore and warp the borders often ambiguous and sometimes nonexistent between reality and imagination. Her work unfolds in various media: installation, text, video, sound. Simon’s artistic process questions politics and imagination in different ways: freedoms, history, fiction, intangible heritage. Her work is driven by a humanistic vision through which otherness and new horizons are regularly present.
Agathe Simon's exhibition Antartica will be shown at Audiorama 8-21 March: http://www.audiorama.se/antarctica-agathe-simon/
