Mimosa Echard

Mimosa Echard draws on biological research, histories of experimental cinema and her own life to create works that play with the relationship between sexuality, synthesis, and perception.

Working across various media—from sculpture to installation to video games—her work is driven by ongoing and contradictory processes of absorption, accumulation and circulation, observed in phenomena as diverse as popular culture, metabolic systems or electromagnetic spectra.

Attentive to the invisible or latent potential of the materials she uses, her assemblages and installations displace the capacity of language to know its object, allowing new and ‘unnatural’ associations to proliferate.

Mimosa Echard is awarded of the Marcel Duchamp Prize 2022.

She has exhibited her work in various internationally renowned institutions such as the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2022); Collection Lambert, Avignon (2021; 2020); Musée d’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, Paris (2020); Australian Center for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2020); Centre d’Art Contemporain d’Ivry — Le CRÉDAC, Ivry (2020); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2017); Dortmunder Kunstverein, Dortmund (2019); Platform-L Contemporary Art Center, Seoul (2018); Cell Project Space Gallery, London (2017); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013); Mains d’oeuvres, Saint-Ouen (2012).
