Partner Antoine Renard
(b. 1984 in Paris, lives in Berlin) is a
visual artist who primarily works with sculpture and installation. Throughout
his work, he often includes digital video works, performances and living
systems. His work is rooted in a diverse range of sources and influences
including abnormal psychologies, online gaming, urban culture, craft, science,
feminism, violence, land art, waste and consumption. Addressing the subject
through the prism of an ecological emancipation, his work stages the crossing
between material, digital and spiritual territories.
Along with his artistic
practice, he curated the independent art space Center in Berlin with Clémence
de La Tour du Pin from 2014 - 2016.
Antoine is a
studio resident at the MeetFactory from February until April 2017, and will be

Prague in spring.
