Charlotte Khouri

Charlotte Khouri (1985) is an artist who designs sets, props and texts to perform on camera or live.
Her performative practice is anchored first of all in an alleged practice of painting graphic motifs, and making or finding accessories. These first practices allow her to activate by voice a ghostly link between forms and subjects, making them sometimes witnesses, sometimes support a scenic complicity with the spectator or with a personified object. By moving existing images, figures, or architectures, adjusting them to new scales, she reappropriates an ultra-present, almost ghostly cultural and historical continuum.

She studied at the Ecole supérieure des beaux-arts de Marseille, then at the Haute Ecole d'art et de design de Genève. She participated in the Salon de Montrouge in May 2019. At the invitation of Anne Le Troter, they together wrote and directed about ten plays of residential theatre which were hosted by the Centre d'art de Saint-Nazaire - le Grand Café, then by the Frac Champagnes-Ardennes and finally by the Théâtre de Nanterre-Amandiers in the Poltergeist programme. She is currently in residence at La Galerie, the Noisy-le-sec art centre, until April 2020.
