Julien Creuzet

Julien Creuzet is a visual artist, video-maker, performer and poet. Through environments made up of composite sets, he organises passages between imaginaries and other places, the social realities of here and now, and the forgotten stories of minorities. Video is used in his environments as an element which is at once plastic and sculptural, a form in constant mutation and a creator of narratives. It often results from written, sung or declaimed poems, unexpected encounters or collaborations.

Born in 1986 in Blanc-Mesnil, Julien Creuzet lives and works in Montreuil. He has been the subject of several solo shows, recently at the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard and Bétonsalon – Centre de recherche (Paris, 2018), or else previously at the Galerie NaMiMa in the École Nationale Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Nancy (2016), or the Frac Basse-Normandie (Caen, 2015). His work has also appeared in numerous group shows, including the Rencontres de Bamako, the 11th African Photography Biennale (2017), the 14th Lyon Biennale (2017), the Frac Pays de la Loire (Carquefou, 2016) or La Galerie, Centre d’art Contemporain (Noisy-le-Sec, 2015). He is represented by Document Gallery in Chicago.
