Julie Béasse

(Born in 1995)
She lives and works in Paris.

Graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Rennes in 2020 (DNSEP Art), Julie Béasse is also the winner of the "Traversées" grant (aid to maintain artistic activity coordinated by the, CIPAC, FRAAP, and the Diagonal network) for the 2021 edition.  She has already participated in several exhibitions.

Inspired by her escapades in the city, "anodyne adventures" of everyday life, Julie Béasse draws, photographs, installations evoking urban landscapes.

Her drawings are as joyful as they are melancholic. To the views she chooses, she adds elements collected during her walks (bitumen, metal, cable, dead leaves). These futile fragments of the landscape are anonymous, excluded from any history.

This isolation makes them meditative supports that can be reappropriated by anyone. They are his materials, his gestures, his subjects. Her drawings are characterised by an economy of means, and the elements she adds are given a new history, while preserving their instability.

The artist attaches great importance to the medium or space in which her works are displayed. She blends different graphic forms with architecture, creating a single drawing. Her visuals are 'hypotheses', 'possibilities' that imply 'among many others'.
