Amélie Bouvier


Amelie Bouvier (b.1982, France) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Her practice begins with the utilization of images and diagrams from various sources, such as scientific and military archives, Google and science-fiction material, exploring lines between real and imagined perceptions. Her laborious drawings transform images and specific details of events in order to provide new perspectives on the identity and agency of place, time and epistemological building blocks. She has had several noteworthy exhibitions including those at Museo Patio Herreriano (Valladolid, Spain), Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa (Lisbon, Portugal), Plataforma Revólver (Lisbon, Portugual), Sabrina Amrani Gallery (Madrid, Spain), the Verbeke Foundation (Kemzeke, Belgium), and at the Museu Da Cidade (Lisbon, Portugal). Her work has been included in the 16th Cerveira International Art Biennial and in the 6th Biennale of Art and Culture of São Tomé e Príncipe. She was selected for the ISELP prize “Hors d’Oeuvre” in Brussels and was named the best emerging artist at Just Mad in Madrid, as well as a finalist for the CIC’Art Prize. In addition to her personal work, Amelie is an active member in the project “Enough Room for Space.”
