Esther Schipper Seoul presents French artist Etienne Chambaud (b. 1980)’s first solo exhibition in Korea, “Prism Prison” through March 9. On view are all new works, among them a neon, a series of modified found objects including icon paintings, and bronze sculptures.

Etienne Chambaud works across a wide spectrum of media, exploring the categories we impose on experiences, objects, and disciplines. His works, installations and exhibitions destabilize our notions of what art is and can be, how an artist conceptualizes and produces a work, and the form, function, and history of the exhibition. ‘Prism Prison’, the title of the exhibition, links the prism to the prison, two entities of confinement and segmentation, one for individuals and the social body, the other for the trajectory of light and its spectrum. Crossing categories as diverse as optics, geometry, the animal body and politics, the exhibition functions as a reflection on constraints, producing both forms and the potential for their emancipation.

Etienne Chambaud was born in Mulhouse, France. He studied at Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL), Villa Arson, Nice, and Ecole nationale des Beaux-Arts (ENBA), Lyon. In 2022, he received a PhD from the SACRe program of PSL University, Ecole Normale Supérieure and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris. The artist lives and works in Paris.

He held solo exhibitions including “Lâme” (LaM – Lille Métropole Musée d’art moderne, d’art contemporain et d’art brut, Villeneuve-d’Ascq, France, 2022); “Negative Knots” (La Kunsthalle Mulhouse, Mulhouse, France, 2018); “Undercuts” (Forde, Geneva, Switzerland, 2012).

And, he participated various group exhibitions such as “The collection: dialogues II Volume 2: Time is an Illusion” (Collegium, Arévalo, Spain, 2023),  “High Spirits” (Monopol, Berlin, 2023), ”Stories of Stone” (Villa Medici, Rome, 2023).

His works are held in collections of Centre Pompidou, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Ishikawa Foundation, Fondation Lafayette, Fondation LVMH, etc.
