The artist and filmmaker Ariane Michel was born in 1973 in Paris and currently lives in Esquibien. After studying at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (Paris) and a stint at the Pavillon – a research cell at the Palais de Tokyo, Ariane Michel has created work in which the narrative techniques of cinema play an important role, inscribing them in her videos, installation devices, film or performances. Whether her project The Screening —a mirror projection in a forest, her feature film Les Hommes, or her aquarium Les Lutétiens which creates an encounter in a cinemascope format between living people and a fossilised setting, they all explore the same concern: through immersion, projection and montage, to provide those who approach them with an experience that distorts their senses.

Her works have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (New York); the Minsheng Art Museum in Shanghai; the Tate Modern in London; Art Basel (Switzerland); Aichi Triennale (Japan); in Paris during Nuits Blanches, the Jeu de Paume arts centre, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard and in public areas in the metro, as well as in film festivals, including the FID Marseille (Grand Prix 2006), Locarno, Rotterdam, Vancouver and Lisbon festivals. Her film Les Hommes was released nationally in France in 2008 (Shellac distribution). Galerie Jousse Entreprise in Paris represents Ariane Michel.

Focus "On curating" - Berta Sichel

Rencontres Internationales continues with its Focus series, initiated in 2016, inviting the audience to discover, during a dedicated one-hour session, the work and specific research of an artist or an exhibition curator. The guest defines the course of each focus.

For the second Focus in Berlin, we have invited the exhibition curator Berta Sichel..

This focus called "On curating", aims to provide the audience with an overview of various contemporary curatorial practices. It will offer an opportunity to develop a critical point of view as well as to share some of Berta Sichel’s experiences and thoughts on this specific practice. Her experience of the media and her work with artists, in the context of art institutions and as an independent curator, will be the discussion framework. With examples and commentary, this focus will highlight the challenges faced by this plural practice.
