Fabrice Cazenave

Fabrice Cazenave translates his experiences into drawings and sculptures. He questions our relationship to truth, to belief, to the present, and uses a subjective tool, his own body, to question reality.
born in 1975, France
works and lives in Paris

He began ballet at a very young age and joined Claude Bardouil’s PMA dance theater company in 1998, as he was studying at the Beaux Arts in Toulouse. Since 2006, he has mainly devoted himself to drawing. His wide-ranging practice stems from a deliberately exploratory, or even experimental, approach. Most of the time, he works with his eyes closed. He feels, tastes, touches, explores his environment, and simultaneously transcribes his sensations onto space-body diagrams. He seeks to discover how a place can transform us through our perceptions of it, and when our rationality flickers to modify our perspective through the prism of our culture and our cognitive biases.

In 2018 Fabrice Cazenave was the first winner of the AIR program for French artists in residence (FAR) / Hill End AIR. This unique residency program is a partnership between the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) and the French Consulate in Sydney. Since 2009, he has had several solo and group exhibitions in France and abroad, including “The garden of shadows” in Bathurst (Australia) in 2019 and recently “Antipolis” organized by the Picasso Museum in Antibes.
