Aurélien Potier lives and works in Marseille. He was an artist in residency at Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Triangle – Astérides (Marseille), Center for Contemporary Arts & GSS (Glasgow), and the CAC Synagogue de Delme. His work has been presented at Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Triangle – Astérides (Marseille), CAPC (Bordeaux), CCA (Glasgow), la Casa Encendida (Madrid), Gianni Manhattan (Vienna), Sissi Club (Marseille), Air de Paris (Romainville), Sultana (Paris), Cooper Union (New York), Belsunce Projects (Marseille), Centre International de Poésie (Marseille), Montez Press Radio (New York).
Inhabited by a strive to bring together contradictory forces, Aurélien’s work is the fruit of intertwining paradoxes; where fragility gives birth to a language permeated with affects. His work creates perceptive environments that are traversed by disorientation, with a vitality from which emerge written, performed, drawn and sculpted forms. Revendicating the power of vulnerability and affirming the centrality of intimacy, Aurélien powerfully expresses the creative potential of emotional fallibility and instable moments.
