Camille Blatrix lives and works in Paris. Blatrix’s sculptures present themselves as artifacts from a near future, emulating the forms of everyday objects while obscuring their own purpose. Machine-like in their appearance, the surfaces of his works disguise the artist’s labor, as each sculpture combines elements that are industrially fabricated with those that are meticulously handcrafted using a variety of traditional techniques, such as wood marquetry. In his practice, Blatrix interjects coded personal and cultural references, allowing seemingly anonymous objects to record fleeting emotions and interactions. In 2020, Blatrix’s work was the subject of a solo exhibition titled Standby Mice Station at Kunsthalle Basel, Basel, which will travel to CAC - la synagogue de Delme, Delme, France in Spring 2021. Past solo exhibitions include: Les Barriéres de l’antique, La Verriére, Fondation d’entreprise Hermés, Brussels, 2019, Fortune, Lafayette Anticipations, Paris, 2019, Somewhere Safer, Kunstverein Braunschweig, Braunschweig, Germany, 2018, and Heroes, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, 2016, among others.
