OVERVIEW
Iris Garagnoux is a French visual artist based in London. In 2021, her first solo show Choreographic Sequences, curated by Nayrouz Tatanaki, was presented in a Pop up Gallery in Cork Street, London. More recently, Garagnoux’s work has been exhibited within group shows in London, Paris and Shanghai, including Saatchi Gallery, Tate Britain Website and H Galerie.
 
Iris Garagnoux’s practice today is focused on the plasticity of the human body, which is torn between a deep desire to reconnect with nature but also evolving with new technologies. Painting allows the artist to create a repertoire of organic gestures, which then she transcribe into sculptural and performative fragments such as body extensions getting closer to the viewer. By layering organic and synthetic elements, new semiotic colours and textures appear considering societal relationships and the tension between the living and the non-living.
 
By exploring Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s concept «Un corps sans organe» (A body without Organs), Garagnoux seeks to make visible an organic interiority which is never fixed and without a proper organization. She tries to transcribe states of in-betweenness, vulnerability, and corporal energetic fluids, emanating from the physical and unseen worlds.
