Bio

Paul Garcin was graduated (Bachelor/MFA) from the Nantes Saint-Nazaire Art School in 2019.  
 

In a multidisciplinary practice mixing performance, video, sound and installation, he creates storytellings, blending autobiography and autofiction, appropriating the modus operandis of American mainstream pop culture in order to deconstruct the archetypes and values it conveys. He is one of the founding members of the collective KimPetrasPaintings .

He presented his work at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Paris (2019); La Graineterie, art center of the city of Houilles (2020); Glassbox (2021); TU-Nantes (2017 / 2019); ENSA Bourges (2017) ...
