    The exhibition title I am Nature – Of Vulnerability. Survival in the risk society defines a common thread running through the exhibited works. How are deep, existential insecurities after and during the Corona pandemic connected with the human understanding of nature, which is shaped by ideas of omnipotence? What are the consequences of this attitude?

    Etienne Chambaud was born 1980 in Mulhouse, France. The artist lives and works in Paris.


    Etienne Chambaud works across a wide spectrum of media, exploring the categories we impose on experiences, objects and disciplines. Individual works, installations and exhibitions destabilize notions of what art is and can be, how an artist conceptualizes and produces a work, and the form, function, and history of the exhibition. Beautiful and complex, Chambaud’s works can change the way we see and know.


    Etienne Chambaud graduated from ECAL, Lausanne (2003) and Villa Arson, Nice (2005). He was part of the postgraduate program of Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon in 2005. Since 2018 he has been conducting a doctoral research in the SACRe program of PSL University, Ecole Normale Supérieure and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris.
