Angélique Aubrit & Ludovic Beillard

Angélique Aubrit and Ludovic Beillard have been exhibiting together as an artist duo since 2017. In their practice, they blend together sculpture, installation, video, performance and drawing, creating imersive environments inhabited by figures in which burlesque narratives and absurd theatre unite. With their multidisciplinary approach the artists use elements of self-sewn clothing, wooden sculptures, and recycled furnishings to give life to their creations. Drawing inspiration from commedia dell’arte, grotesque cinema, and philosophical concepts, they craft characters that serve as poignant reflections of marginalized minorities and societal struggles. In their video installations and performances, these characters navigate situations of desperation, their wooden heads and constrained gestures conveying a palpable sense of uncanniness. Yet, Aubrit and Beillard’s work transcends mere pessimism, aiming instead to provoke introspection and collective dialogue. Their exhibitions serve as chapters in an ongoing narrative, inviting viewers to confront the complexities of the human condition and their own roles within it. In their meticulously staged environments, a neurotic psychic state prevails, implicating both observer and observed in a shared sense of unease. Each work serves as a mirror, challenging visitors to consider the possibility that they too could inhabit these surreal landscapes.
