After graduating from the prestigious Swiss University of arts and design of Lausanne, Salomé Chatriot has been working from Paris as a contemporary artist and an mutimedia interaction designer.
As an artist, her work focuses on the creation of physical and virtual spaces: she builds machines and installations where electronic sculptures and digital images coexist. Fascinated by the way science treats body[ies] through data-oriented objectivity, she uses potential futures and new technologies to shape a fluid, digital and precious identity.
In disagreement with the techno-negative attitude, the ecosystems she produces always bear the mark of a certain healing. The well-being she wishes to transmit often involves the real-time diffusion of organic flows such as breathing, circulation of liquids and [al] chemical transformations. In her artistic creations, the process is as important as the result: experimenting and manipulating physical, electronic, digital and virtual materials in the manner of a scientist; with rigour and precision. In a recent interview for Clot magazine, she was asked to define how she saw her own artistic practice. The answer: ’a kind of Dr. Frankeinstein super tech version’.
Established in the contemporary art world in France and internationally, she has exhibited her work in many world-renowned institutions: from the salone internazionale del mobile in Milano (IT) , to the File festival in São Paulo (BR), Passing by San Francisco (US), London (EN) and Paris, where she had her rst solo show during La Totale (FR). Currently working on a new immersive show for june in Geneva, she also collaborates with Samuel Fasse on two upcoming solo exhibitions in Paris and London at Nicoletti Contemporary.
