Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

Loris Gréaud, born in 1979 in Eaubonne, is a French multidisciplinary Conceptual artist who works in architecture, film, music, and quantum mechanics. Gréaud studied at the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris, and then at the National School of Art in Cergy-Pontoise, where he received a degree in graphic arts.

In January 2002, he participated in the inauguration of the Contemporary Art center Le Plateau in Paris. With the aim of providing a complete sensory experience for his audience, in 2004, alongside architects Marc Dölger and Damien Ziakovic, Gréaud created the multidisciplinary production studio DGZ Research, where he produced the “utopian” projects, which encompassed invisible architecture, constructed using air currents, sub-visible nano-sculptures, black champagne, and flavorless candy.

He won the Prix Ricard S.A. in 2005. Three years later, Gréaud became the first artist to take over the entirety of the 40,000-square-foot Palais de Tokyo in Paris, with his monumental and multidisciplinary installation Cellar Door, which grew into a series of exhibitions and works revolving around the imagined narrative of an artist’s studio detached from time and space. The project, which spanned five years and was site-specific to each venue, traveled to some of Europe’s most respected institutions, including the ICA, London, UK, Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, Switzerland, La Conservera, Murcia, Spain, and culminated in the summer of 2011 at the Kunsthalle Wien in Austria. He created an enormous 55-foot-long beached whale sculpture for the 2011 Venice Biennale.

Gréaud’s work has been widely exhibited in public institutions throughout the world, and in recent years, he has been the subject of significant museum exhibitions in major cities worldwide, including Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, Paris, Berlin and Milan.

He currently lives and works in Paris.
