Perrine Lievens

1981 born Aix-en-Provence, France
Lives and works in Paris, France

(*1981 in Aix-en-Provence) lives and works in Paris. Lievens works with objects that we know from our famil­iar sur­round­ings. By sculp­turally rework­ing the objects and rein­ter­pret­ing their func­tion, she ques­tions estab­lished pat­terns of per­cep­tion and forces us to rethink the use and func­tion of the objects; they appear to have acquired an addi­tional poetic dimen­sion. Lievens has exhib­ited at the Espace Paul Ricard (Paris), the Super Win­dow Gallery (Kyoto), the Fonderie Dar­ling (Mon­tréal) and else­where. In 2009 she took part in exhi­bi­tion “CHHTTT…” le mer­veilleux dans l’art con­tem­po­rain: 2ième volet’ at Crac Alsace (Altkirch).
