Born in 1985 in Montpellier (FR). Lives and works in Paris (FR).

Florent Audoye’s artistic practice is guided by essential questions regarding the codification systems that govern our lives and our relations with the institution. His critical, theoretical, and conceptual artworks, and in particular his drawings, take a rather poetic form, as well as an extremely lively and humoristic form, as we see especially in his performance pieces.

Eva Barois de Caevel, 2015

Florent Audoye collects institutional documents from which he defuses the serious and authoritarian aspects by intrusive and poetic drawings. Influenced by the performing arts, Florent continues his subversive approach to the administrative world through video and performance. Mixing the methods, he parodies the bureaucratic universe of normative rules by series of absurd actions punctuated by theatrical staging moments. He also records gestures and bodily actions related to administrative dramaturgy in short, looped videos.

Born in 1985 in Montpellier and a graduate of the Paris 1 Panthe?on-Sorbonne University 2010 class, artist Florent Audoye’s research is marked by themes of work, bureaucracy, identity and gender which he expresses through the mediums of drawing, writing, video, and performance. He regularly collaborates with performing artists, videographers, and choreographic dancers to explore and explose the limits of visual arts in performance.
Since his participation to the 58th Salon de Montrouge in 2013, his work was exhibited in various institutions as La Ge?ne?rale en Manufacture, Se?vres, 2014 ; Centre d’art contemporain d’Alfortville, Alfortvile, 2016 ; Le Ge?ne?rateur, Gentilly, 2016 ; Le Point E?phémère, Paris, 2017 ; Espace a? Vendre, Nice, 2017, and more recently for Palais de Tokyo’s international festival “DO DISTURB #4” (2018).
