Claire Malrieux

Born in 1972

Lives and works in Bordeaux & Paris

Claire Malrieux lives and works in Bordeaux and Paris. After graduating from the Ensba in 2000, she co-founded the Mix publishing house with fellow members of the collective she worked with from 2000 to 2006. Her collaborative practice has led her to experience the conditions in which narratives can move between hybrid forms that combine publishing, History and fiction.

In 2014, she took part in a research residency programme at the Musée des arts décoratifs in Paris, during which she laid the foundations of her current work and exhibited her first online algorithmic graphic work.

Since then, she has developed the project HyperDrawing, in which she alternates research periods, technical experiments and the production of generative graphic artwork. Her latest works mobilise the enunciatory power of drawing to reflect on the narrative and speculative perspectives of algorithmic thought.

Her work is regularly shown in France and abroad and has been acquired by several private collections. She showed her generative graphic piece Climat général (General Climate) at the Venice Biennale and at the Collège des Bernardins in 2017 and was awarded the “Talents contemporains” Prize by the François Schneider Foundation in 2018.
