Harold Guérin

Harold Guérin's artistic approach is built on the observation of landscape. Installation, sculpture, drawing and video/action are all mediums that the artist explores and make interact. Guérin’s work questions the relationship between architecture and internal changes that occur in the surrounding landscape.   His interest lies in challenging the foundations of urban planning that are in collision with the Earth’s rhythm and its unpredictable structural mutations. Places are mentioned but disappear in favor of  a detail,  a sample or a representation caught in flight. The artist uses almost invisible gestures in his sculptures that are made of elements such as water, soil or wind. He challenges objects to the limits of their structure, disposing them of their own functionality and giving them new meaning.  

Harold Guerin is graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Nancy (2006). In 2009 he was invited to the FRAC Champagne-Ardenne residency in France where he presented the exhibition Hors champs. In 2010, the FRAC Franche-Comté selected him for Grand Est residency. His work is featured in several group exhibitions such as L’avenir d’une illusion at the CAC Passages in Troyes (France), Robert Schuman Art prize in Metz (France), the Moving Worlds triennial in Luxembourg, Space Between at the CAB in Grenoble(France), The material feat in Geneva (Switzerland), Jeune Création at Centre-quatre in Paris, Esta no es una historia at MACMA, Maracay, in Venezuela. He joined in 2012 different residency programs as Astérides in Marseille, CAMAC Art center in Marnay-sur-Seine which lead to his solo show  inclinaisons variables and finally took part of Residency Unlimited program in New York. In 2013 his solo exhibition Frozen Dynamics occurred at the gallerie Histoire de l'Oeil in Marseille. The same year he curated the exhibition of graduates à partir d'ici / distance retour at NaMima gallery ENSA in Nancy. Harold Guérin will be in AIR residence at the MeetFactory where he will participate to the exhibition project Journey.
