Tania Mouraud

Portfolio Categories: Artists.

Tania Mouraud is a major figure of the French art scene whose artistic production is unclassifiable. She doesn’t cease to reinvent her practice since the end of the 1960’s, through various media: painting, installation art, photo, sound, video, performance. Her work questions the aesthetic relationships between art and the violence of our world, as well as the limits of perception via her « shaped words » (« mots de forme »). Since 1998, she considers photo, video and sound in a close relation to painting in order to question several aspects of History and the living world. Mouraud’s committed art should be understood as a citizen’s public speaking. The struggles she stands up for are the one of an artist who lives with her eyes open to the world.
