Sandrine Llouquet is a French-Vietnamese visual artist living in Ho Chi Minh city for 6 years.
Her works has been exhibited in numerous contemporary art spaces in Europe, Asia and North America including Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Arco (Seoul), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco). She has also been part of prestigious contemporary art events such as Singapore Biennale, Shenzhen Biennale or Art Hong Kong alone or with her two artists-collective “Wonderful District” and “Mogas Station”.
“ Sandrine Llouquet creates artworks which are simultaneously playful and evocative, hinting of wonder and wounds. Her practice embraces these contradictory impulses, culling images and references from mass media, her personal narrative, collective memory, literature, and so on. Her images are at once familiar and unsettling (…). Referring to her body of work, Llouquet writes, “ Each piece is a tentative. . . combination of the contradictory feelings which animate me, particularly violence and sweetness.” Violence and sweetness, ambivalence and liminality are at the heart of the artist’s practice. Trauma and kitsch, play and pathos are not polar binaries for Llouquet; they inform and transform each other.” (Viet Le, Sandrine Llouquet, Milk catalog)…Read More
