Artist of the Collection

Julien Discrit

Born in 1978 at Epernay, France

Julien Discrit’s work is governed by the discrete and the continuous. More specifically, the artist exploits the concept of the fragment as a symbol of the continuities and discontinuities that dominate the relationship between the human being and the surrounding world, namely the non-human as expressed by the anthropologist Philippe Descola. His thinking is also driven by geography, which the artist uses to “describe the world” as well as to approach the relationship between the visible and the hidden.

Born in 1978 in Épernay (France), Julien Discrit graduated with honours from the École supérieure d'art et de design de Reims in 2004, where he has taught since 2019. He is represented by the Anne-Sarah Bénichou (Paris) and Thomas Henry Ross Art Contemporain (Montreal) galleries. He lives and works between Paris and Montreal.
