BIOGRAPHY

Clément Borderie creates installations that are akin to the art of sculpture and painting. He wishes to capture the essence of a place, create its spatio-temporal identity card, reveal what is imperceptible through highlighting the minute details which ordinarily escape us. In nature, he installs metal structures of various shapes and sizes, on which he stretches canvases. In this type of setup, he lets the canvases react with the elements, resulting in unique patterns and markings over the passage of time and the transition of seasons. Henceforth, these blank canvases become a space for experimental creation.

Clément Borderie (b.1960, Senlis, France) graduated from Manufactures Nationales des Gobelins-Mobilier National Paris in 1983, now lives and works in Paris. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Musée d’art contemporain Kiscell, Budapest; Centre d’Art La Base, Levallois-Perret, France; Château du Rivau, Tours, France; Maison des Arts de Bagneux, France; Galerie Dumonteil, Paris & Shanghai; Galerie Alberto Aquilino, New York; Galerie Valérie Bach, Bruxelles; Galerie Enéa, Zurich, etc.
