Amélie Bouvier


Amélie Bouvier (b. 1982, France) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Her practice focuses on scientific imagery and discoveries, as well as the lacunes in knowledge and how we fill them through popular imagination, anecdotes, and other fictions. Working primarily with astronomy, Bouvier’s laborious drawings examine the myths we create around scientific data and discovery. She has had several noteworthy exhibitions including those at the Galeria da Boavista, EGEAC, Lisbon (PT), Sesc Ipiranga (São Paulo, BR), Museo Patio Herreriano (Valladolid, ES), Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa (Lisbon, PT), Plataforma Revólver (Lisbon, PT), Sabrina Amrani Gallery (Madrid, ES), the Verbeke Foundation (Kemzeke, BE) and Museu Da Cidade (Lisbon, PT). Her work has been included in the 16th Cerveira International Art Biennial (PT). Last exhibitions of her work took place at Greylight Projects (Brussels, BE) and Aomori Contemporary Art Center (Aomori, JP) and she currently has a solo show at The Arsenal Gallery (Bialystok, PL). She is the winner of the 2016 Hors-d'oeuvre prize, awarded by ISELP (Brussels, BE) and in addition to her personal work, Amélie is co-founder of "Uncertainty Scenarios", a project hosted by Enough Room for Space.
