Morgane Tschiember

August 16, 2013

A French artist, Morgane Tschiember is known for practice that blurs the distinction between painting and sculpture. She has developed her work from two- to three-dimensional pieces, in order to explore the transitions between dimensions, and how they relate to each other.

Born in 1976 in Brest, France, Tschiember graduated from DNSAP from ENSBA in Paris (National School of Fine Arts) in 2002 and DNSEP (National School of Artistic Expression) in Quimper in 1999. She is the winner of the Espace Paul Ricard Prize in 2001. She has participated in over 60 solo and group shows throughout the world, including venues such as Fondation d'entreprise Ricard, Paris, France, Gallery Loevenbruck, Paris, France, Super Window Project, Art Fair Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, Super Window Project, Kyoto, Japan, Audio Visual Arts, New York, USA, Gallery Lange & Pult, Zurich, Switzerland, Gallery Sollertis, Toulouse, France, and Galerie Loevenbruck, Paris, France.

Working on fundamental elements such as form, color and material, Tschiember explores the new possibilities of painting and making sculptures, revealing her interest in how the meaning "shifts". At once polymorphous and protean, her work is in perpetual expansion, as attested by the multiple techniques and protocols I employed.
