Yoann Ximenes

Lives and works in Rivesaltes (Pyrénées-Orientales).
Yoann Ximenes is a visual artist whose poetic approach is based on the observation of sound phenomena.

His research is in line with philosophical and sociological research into language, and aims to embody voices and sounds in plastic form, particularly in performance.

The artist stages what we cannot see: the political speeches that have marked the modern world, the war of words in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the first cry of the first test-tube baby, the birth of the Universe in Ancient Egypt, the singing of planets or extinct bird species. Her works combine sensory stimuli, interweaving sound and visuals that respond to each other like an echo of form. The artist's research explores the energies of sound in the creative process, questioning our apprehension of the world.
