Aurélien Potier lives and works in Marseille. He studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, and the Cooper Union School of Art, New York. He was an artist in residency at Triangle – Astérides (Marseille), Center for Contemporary Arts & GSS (Glasgow), and currently is a resident at the City Studios Programme in Marseille. His work has been presented at Triangle – Astérides (Marseille), Sissi Club (Marseille), CAPC (Bordeaux), CCA (Glasgow), Montez Press Radio (New York), Cooper Union (New York), Belsunce Projects (Marseille), Centre International de Poésie (Marseille), Tonus (Paris), Haus Wien (Vienna).

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.
