Charlotte Charbonnel

Artistic research and experimentation, hybridization of knowledges

Lives and works in Paris. After a three-month stay in India at the Sanskriti Kendra Foundation in 2003, she graduated from the École supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Tours (2004) and the École nationale supérieure des Arts décoratifs (2008).

Named “Woman to Watch” in 2018 by the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., she has exhibited in various institutions including Le Centre d’art contemporain la Maréchalerie in Versailles, the Verrière Hermès in Brussels, the Réattu Museum in Arles, the Domaine de Chamarande in Essonne, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the MAC VAL in Vitry-sur-Seine, and recently at the Abbaye de Maubuisson in Saint-Ouen l’Aumône and at the Creux de l’Enfer in Thiers. Several exhibition catalogs have been published as well as a monograph of her work (A07-A17), published by Les Presses du réel.

Charlotte Charbonnel is an artist interested in the energy contained in matter. She probes our environment to bring out its natural forces and make us feel its flows. Listening to the world, she has explored and transmitted the acoustic vibration of the places where she has been invited to exhibit. Her work stems from an empirical research with multiple entries. Her multidisciplinary practice is linked to space and is informed by “sciences”, collaborations and investigations in different fields and disciplines.
