An international visibility
Clémence Vazard (b. 1985, France) is a transdiciplinary artist living and working between Paris, Arles and Mexico City.
The artist graduated from Central Saint Martins with distinction in 2022, received a support grant from the City of Paris for her project #monpremierharcelement (#myfirstharassment) in 2017 and completed a residency at Casa Roga in Mexico City in 2021 and at Les Ateliers de La Madeleine in Arles in 2022.
As an artist-researcher, Vazard investigates the power of personal stories in the construction of our singular, multiple and unstable identities and the need to reclaim our intimate narratives, left out of the Great History. With participatory processes, the artist addresses political issues through personal testimonies.
Her practice is distinguished by a rich diversity of forms and techniques, from participatory performance to embroidered photographs printed on textile, as well as ceramics, sound installations, and plant dyeing... with the photographic medium as the meeting point between the intimate and the universal.
Vazard’s work has been exhibited internationally in New York, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Montreal, Mexico City, Arles, Brussels and Greece among others. She is a member of several art collectives working on feminist and environmental issues, including Loud Spring and The Ant Project.
