Jeanne Varaldi / artist in residency July 2021

Jeanne Varaldi, a visual artist based in Paris, is the artist seleccionated for a 1 month residency during July 2021. She uses construction materials to challenge the urban fabric: pieces of plaster, granite, concrete or wood are collected and reassembled with pigmented cement, straps or coloured ropes. These installations enhance the texture and uneven shapes of urban fragments. The city becomes a playground for experimentation and regeneration. The viewer is confronted with new landscapes, in which construction materials become precious and secret resources. Jeanne Varaldi also creates murals that transform the public space through abstract patterns and pastel colors.
