Victoire GONZALVEZ / Visual arts & creative writings

Victoire Gonzalvez (1997, France) is a French artist, performer and writer. Her work reveals the absurdity of our social norms through her sense of materiality, poetry and her theoretical interest in the standardization of our living spaces and the influence of this phenomenon on our everyday practices. After studying at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, she developed an artistic practice based on the stages of making simulacra in the industrial sphere. This research also evolved through teaching at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart. Her work has been exhibited in a number of institutions in France and Germany.

By joining the Fondation Thalie’s residency programme in 2024, the artist aims to undertake theoretical and visual research into stone cardboard. Her project named Matière à Effet stems from the observation that it is impossible to identify, in a sensitive and intelligible way, the surface of materials produced by our standardized manufacturing methods, and the impact of this phenomenon on our health through industrial production methods that favor a visual approach to matter.
