Julien Creuzet

Julien Creuzet is a Franco-Caribbean artist, born in 1986, who lives and works in Montreuil (FR). He creates protean works that integrate poetry, music, sculpture, assemblage, film and animation. By evoking trans-oceanic postcolonial exchanges and their multiple temporalities, the artist places his past, present and future heritage at the heart of his production. Ignoring global narratives and cultural reductionism, Creuzet’s work often highlights anachronisms and social realities to construct irreducible objects. Similar to relics of the future brought ashore by an ocean tide, Creuzet’s works materialize as amplified testimonies of history, technology, geography and the self. Julien represents France at the 60th Venice Biennale in 2024. His work has been exhibited at LUMA, Arles and Zurich (FR and CH); Camden Art Center, London (GB); Centre Pompidou, Paris (FR); Palais De Tokyo, Paris (FR); CAN Centre d’Art Neuchâtel (CH); Bétonsalon, Paris (FR); CNAC Magasin, Grenoble (FR)… He has participated in numerous institutional group shows such as Performa 2023 Biennale (US); 35th Biennial of São Paulo (BR); 12th Liverpool Biennial (GB); Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art (US); Tinguely Museum, Basel (CH); MMK Museum (DE)… He received the Étant Donnés Prize 2022, the BMW Art Journey Award 2021, the Camden Arts Center Emerging Artist Prize 2019 at Frieze and was also nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2021.
