Artists

Mark Geffriaud

Mark Geffriaud was born in 1977 in Vitry sur Seine, he lives and works in Paris.

Based on the production of installations, sculptures, films and performances the work of Mark Geffriaud focuses on the construction of time and memory. The apparition (circulation) and disappearance (oblivion) of images and forms prepares the ground of a fragmented archaeology in which misunderstanding as a cognitive process plays a great part. Free associations, formal comparisons and false fictions allow the artist to share a kind of subtle and shifted perception of the world. Mark Geffriaud’s works suggest an absence and tends to draw the outline of a universe that the viewer is invited to fill up with his own projections.
