Laure Tixier

Drawing, photography, video

Born in 1972, Laure Tixier lives and works in Paris.

She questions the architecture, urban planning and the social organization, which they contain. Multiplying the practices - watercolor, cartoon, installation, ceramic, embroidery…, She creates a universe between subtlety and radicality which associates sometimes, opposed elements, just as much of the folk culture than the art or science’s history, the today's society, and the utopias.

Resident of villa Kujoyama in Kyoto in 2000, French winner of "Women to Watch" of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington in 2012, she participated to the Yokohama Triennial in 2001 and in a number of solo and group exhibitions at the RAM Foundation in Rotterdam, the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris, at the Mudam in Luxembourg, at the Beirut Art Center in Lebanon, at Musée d’Art Contemporain de Rochechouart.

Polaris Galerie in Paris represents her work.
