Soazic Guezennec is a French artist, living between Mumbai and Paris.
Her works mixes painting, video and installation to question the relationship between Man and Nature.
She explores the planet and takes inspiration from her environment to create immersive pieces which combine a poetic vision with a sense of threat that draw the viewer in on both an emotive and intellectual level.
In 2002, she traveled across Africa for one year, as part of a search for modern nomadism. A trek in Himalaya inspired a video of a melting mountain. An expedition in Amazonia resulted in a serie of paintings of red forest. A mermaid falling into the twilight zone tells her experience of deep dives in the ocean.
Since her move to Mumbai in 2010 she creates sculptures and installations which are focussing both on the fragility and resilience of nature in an urban environment.
For her last solo show , she opened a fake real estate company, “Happy Owners @ subjective architecture realty”, the only real estate company giving nature the city it deserves. She has opened 10 different branches in India, one in Istanbul and soon in New York.
Soazic Guezennec was trained in painting at the Atelier des Beaux Arts de Paris. Her work has been displayed in museums and galleries in many countries including the Chelsea Art Museum in New York, the MMAC festival in Tokyo, as well as in Paris, Berlin, Mexico, New Dehli, Barcelona,…
