Alix Boillot

Graduated from the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Alix Boillot designs sculptures, installations, set designs, performances and publications.

From her work on stage, she keeps the timeline, the essence of life, with which she confronts her sculptures: ephemeral, they tend towards their own disappearance. She gathers traces and relics of what defines our humanity, with a preference for what has no value other than that which we give it - the imaginary, the simulacrum, belief, the immaterial. On a different scale, she designs unprofitable, potential spaces that she invites people to inhabit: the void, the counter-shape of the living, becomes an invitation.

Her work has been presented at the Ménagerie de Verre (Paris), the SUBS (Lyon), the Fondation Ricard (Paris), the Saint Ignace church during the Nuit Blanche (Paris), Plastique Danse Flore (Versailles), the CND (Pantin), the Cndc (Angers), the Festival d'Automne (Paris) and the Festival d'Avignon. She will be a resident at the Villa Médicis in 2023-2024.
Among her many collaborations, she has worked with César Vayssié, Ivana Müller, Julien Lacroix, Ola Maciejewska, Robert Cantarella, Dominique Gilliot, Anaïs de Courson and Émilie Labédan.
