Mimosa Echard

Born in 1986 at Alès, France

Mimosa Echard uses media as diverse as ceramics, oil painting, sculpture, photography, film, and installation, in order to create hybrid ecosystems that bring culture and nature together. Medicinal plants, food supplements, cosmetics, electronic components, contraceptive pills, and fertility stimulants react with each other to create fluid and unpredictable forms. Drawing on cyborg technology, the DIY spirit, and Wicca naturalism, Mimosa Échard’s practice is often qualified as that of a postmodern witch.

Born in 1986 in Alès, Mimosa Échard lives and works in Paris. She graduated from the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Villa Arson in Nice. Nominated for the Meurice Prize in 2015, she was a resident at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto in 2020.
