Mickaël Marchand (1982) received the « bourse des arts plastiques de la ville de Grenoble 2012 ». His shows include CNAC Grenoble, Centre d’Art de la Bastille, Galleria Suzy Shammah, Palazzo Rizo: Museo d'arte Contemporanea della Sicilla (Palermo) and the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art.
Mickaël Marchand conceptual approach of installation incorporate photographs and videos as documentation. Repetition as a protocole of research create series of works linked to the cities he is traveling. Whatever humor that can be perceived, Marchands work has to do with the construction, the structure and the limits of balance. His artistic conscience has always been leading by the need to keep his installations real : « My pieces are in balance without cheating ».
