Anne-Charlotte Finel

Born in 1986, Anne-Charlotte Finel was graduaded from the Beaux-Arts of Paris with honors in 2010. As a video artist, she chose to work in a permanent interstice: “I make my videos at night, at dawn, at dusk, and at the witching hour.” An uncertain, mysterious period, when everything is as if on hold. This interstice is also geographical, on the borderline between city and country, a transitory landscape to be criss-crossed with the eye, and recurrent in the artist’s praxis. She seeks to create “images moving away from a reality which would be too raw, too defined”, slow, almost dreamlike images, similar to an abstract motif.

Recipient of the Video Award from François Sommer Fondation in 2015 and of the Conseil Départemental des Hauts-de-Seine Award attributed to her at the Salon de Montrouge in 2016. She had solo exhibitions at Galerie Edouard Manet (Gennevilliers), Galerie Jousse Entreprise (Paris), Ateliers Vortex (Dijon), Centre d’art Le Lait (Albi), The Chimney (New York) as well as in five cities around Russia in partnership with the Saint-Petersburg French Institute. Her work was included in collective exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo and the Synagogue de Delme in France as well as internationally (Mexico, Australia, Hong-Kong, Italy, Germany, Japan and The United States).
