Agathe de Bailliencourt is a painter, born in 1974 in Paris and currently based in Berlin. She works on canvas and paper, as well as in public space and architecture. Although her drawings and paintings are rather abstract, her work is characterized by a more or less aggressive pressure to be as tangible as possible. Agathe de Bailliencourt is interested in the act of painting within a concrete context.
On canvas and paper, she is concerned with the creative process of attaining a certain kind of depth. Here, Agathe de Bailliencourt speaks about her personal experience, her own freedom and its constraints, in a direct and spontaneous way. she attempts to show a total sincerity of the self, which also includes incidence and failure. Regarding the installations, Agathe de Bailliencourt develops her work directly within the perspectives of the urban landscape, within the everyday reality of people. The installations do not follow a precast plan but emerge in the actual occupation of the space when she starts working. Although the starting points are different, artist’s motivation and ways of researching are the same inside or outside the studio. Primarily, she is interested in personal freedom and liberation. Therefore, the integral elements of her work are figures of contradiction and repetition, patterns of continuous, countless, irrepressible approach.
