Audry Liseron-Monfils was recently featured by ARC Magazine. Born in Cayenne, French Guiana, the artist studied in Martinique and France, and is now based in France and Belgium.
Description: The artistic approach of Audry Liseron Monfils is defined by a propensity for experimentation, unpredictability. Thus the artist suggests situations that involve the public. To this end, he integrates physical movement and optical performance within the exhibition halls or public spaces. Similarly, the exhibitions consist of drawings, sculptures and objects in their dual role, set up to interact with each other and with the space itself, showing the artist’s desire to propose an experiment: to offer freedom of the gaze and modes of perception and to reflect diverse models of reality.
Liseron-Monfils has participated in countless workshops (such as Ateliers 94 at ARC/MAM Ville de Paris), performances, and exhibitions in Europe, South America, the United States, and India (including the 9th Triennale in New Delhi). He is also the winner of the Villa Medicis Hors les Murs (New York and New Orleans). In 2006 and 2007, he participated in the exhibitions “Latitudes – Terres d’Amazonie” and “Latitudes – Terre de Guyane” in Cayenne. His recent solo exhibitions include venues such as the Galley Thrust Projects in New York. In Paris, the artist is represented by the Anton Weller Gallery.
