Christine Enrègle, born in 1973 in Paris, earns her PhD in Visual Arts from Paris 1, Panthéon-Sorbonne University, with “first class honours”, in 2008. Since then, she is professor of visual arts at the Condé school of design, in Paris. While writing her thesis, she is awarded university scholarships to study in Brazil, at the Fine Arts School of Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais). She takes part in several group exhibitions and organizes personal exhibitions. In July/August 2004 she is the first artist in residence at the Rio botanical gardens where she presents a personal exhibition titled “the harvests garden”. In 2017, she travels to Ireland for a residency, and subsequently receives the first prize at the group exhibition organized in Seoul (South Korea) by the research center on color KSCS (Korean Society of Color Studies). Her artistic approach raises the question of the practice of landscape, considered as a material, whose elements once collected, displaced and transformed, constitute the matrix of her installations. Highlighted during the time of an exhibition, they appear as so many clues of the sites that were crossed.
The drop shadows that they generate invite the viewer, in turn, to lean “on the features of unknown, of an other or an elsewhere.” (Mehdi Brit).
