Biography

Jeanne Fredac is an explorer. She tries, plays, tries out the situations she encounters, juggles with mediums. She favors experience, research and discovery rather than being confined under a label. Her multifaceted work, voluntarily breaks with artistic categories. Photographs, paintings, sculptures, videos and texts explore man’s relationship to his geographical, historical or social environment, refusing to take a one-sided view. She produces figurative and abstract works that transcend a simplistic apprehension of being. The work of light and line, the presence of time in all these dimensions, three recurring components of these works question our disposition to not look, our capacity to not think, our complexity, that of the world and the universe. Her work has been exhibited in France, Germany, Italy, the USA and Denmark.
