Mona Varichon


Mona Varichon is an artist and a translator.

She wonders where and for whom artworks live, if art can exist online or in a community before it exists in a museum, and if that is where its most discerning viewers are. With the material and tools of everyday life, such as advertising, social networks or the words of those closest to her, her photos and videos draw a chronicle of the present time that seeks to pay homage to it, while revealing the sociological realities that drive it and make it worse.

Her work has recently been presented at the Capc musée d'art contemporain, Bordeaux; at the Festival Les Urbaines, Lausanne; at the Festival des Chichas de la Pensée at the Magasins Généraux, Pantin; at The Vanity gallery, Los Angeles and Balice Hertling, Paris; online at Renaissance TV, Chicago, Jeu de Paume Lab, Paris and Cinema 3, ICA London; at the experimental cinema l'Etna, Montreuil; at the Redcat Theatre and Echo Park Film Center, Los Angeles; at Fiesta Hall in Plummer Park and the Egyptian Theatre, Hollywood.
