Jeanne Briand (b.1990) is a french artist living in Paris. She holds an MFA (dnsap with jury’s honors) from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris.
Interweaving materials, molecules and affects, Jeanne Briand’s practice looks into progress in science and in genetic in particular as a medium. She questions our specificities as well as our relationship with others through the fundamental organic structure that is our DNA. Her hybrid works made of mechanical parts, glass or leather stand at the crossroad of scientific discoveries and artefacts, while her Gamete Glass sculptures exist as an opera of genetic glass generating sounds enabled by the very own breath that created them.
Jeanne Briand’s work has been exhibited around the world including places such as Sunset RunSpace, Los Angeles ; Clark House, Bombay ; La Panacée Arts Center, Montpellier ; South Dublin Arts Center, Dublin ; Lūznava Manor Rēzeknes Arts Center, Rezekne, Latvia ; Fondation Hyppocrène, Paris ; Centro Culturale Textura, Bogotà ; California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles …
She received several awards and grants, including Production grants ADAGP / Salon de Montrouge ; PalaisInsta Residency, Palais de Tokyo ; Laureate of Palais des Beaux-Arts de Paris – New Technology Prize ; Laureate of Aurige – Amis des Beaux-Arts de Paris Prize ; Scholarship Ensba with California Institute of the Arts…
