Antoine SCHMITT

Visual artist, lives and works in  Paris, France.

 

Antoine Schmitt creates artworks in the form of objects, installations and situations to address the  processes of movement in all of their modalities, and question their intrinsic conceptual problematics of visual, philosophical or social nature. Heir of kinetic art and cybernetic art, nourished by metaphysical science-fiction, he endlessly interrogates the dynamic interactions between human nature and the nature of reality. Originally programming engineer in human computer relations and artificial intelligence, he places the program, a contemporary artistic material and unique by its active quality, at the core of most of his artworks, to reveal and literally manipulate the forces at stake. With a precise and minimal aesthetics, he raises the question of movement, of its causes and of its forms. Antoine Schmitt, alone or through collaborations, has undertaken an articulation of this approach with more established artistic fields like music, dance, architecture, literature or cinema.

His work has received awards in international festivals and has been exhibited at Pompidou, MAC - Lyon, Ars Electronica - Linz...
He is represented in Paris by the Galerie Charlot.
