Anaïs Touchot

Born in 1987

Lives and works in Brest

Anaïs Touchot tackles language. She addresses us directly, offering services through posters and slogans that play on capitalist injunctions for wellness and personal accomplishment. Her work reclaims amateur activism and protests the stress placed on performance, productivity and success that burden the artist and the world. Her art is always imagined alongside its participants, protecting it from the art world, with its jargon and mechanisms claiming to determine the legitimacy and value of a piece of art.
