Multifaceted artist working across different media, Julien Creuzet will be representing France for the 60th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, which will take place from 20th April to 24th November 2024 (professional days: 17th-19th April).
It is at a talk he gave at Maison Édouard Glissant, across from Diamond Rock in the Caribbean Sea, that the project devised by Julien Creuzet for the French Pavilion at the 60th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia first saw the light.
The title of each of Julien Creuzet’s works and exhibitions is a poem. This mode of address, a long way from the norms of museum design, press releases and cartels, is one that the artist has cultivated since his beginnings. Once again, it conveys an invitation to intense experience and to interpretative freedom and diversity. In this poem, with its places, colours, movements, sounds, rhythms, textures, luminosities, obscurities, landscapes, mythologies, disasters and emotions… Julien Creuzet’s sonic and chromatic grammar resonates in its entirety.
For Biennale Arte 2024, Julien Creuzet transforms the French Pavilion and invites visitors into a space irrigated with fluids in which a radical and collective imaginary opens up, populated with divine presences, and connected to Venice by its water.
“What I want to offer visitors to this this Pavilion is a complex and sensory zone of confluence, a deeply lived experience. For me, that is what this space is about. It is a crossway, a place where anything may be encountered, above all oneself.” Julien Creuzet
