Agathe de Bailliencourt

Agathe de Bailliencourt was born in 1974 in Paris and graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Cergy Pontoise, France. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

She works on canvas and paper, cloth, as well as in public space, architecture and nature. Her drawings and paintings are spontaneously produced, with leaving traces of the production process. She often uses tools that have never been used in painting (tree branches, corrugated cardboard pieces, the stoppers of cola bottles, etc.), and paints directly with her fingers. She constantly seeks new artistic expression.


In 2006, she participated in the Singapore Biennale with a site-specific paint installation. In 2009, she was invited by Mori Art Museum in Tokyo to take part in the Roppongi Art Night. In 2010, she published an artist book with Revolver Publishing and had her first New York solo exhibition at Lu Magnus titled Expressway to your Skull. Between 2011 and 2012, Agathe de Bailliencourt took part in two residencies. After that, She had her second New York solo exhibition, Sheer, with Benrimon Contemporary in 2013.
