Loris Gréaud is a conceptual artist who developed projects that promise to engage viewers because his works are always punctual and provide necessary materializations of his different projects. Most of his works involve mediums like sculpture, painting, installation, video, and also different kinds of performances. He is an artist who knows how to remove the boundaries between fiction and reality, and not all artists have the talent to do that.
He is the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres or the Knight In The Order of Arts and Letters since 2014. He also was the very first artist who was able to make the Dallas Contemporary in the United States full of people in his exhibition in 2015. Since 2005, Loris Greaud became one of the most iconic artists of his generation. He had too many accomplishments yet he disapproved of publishing his biography.
How Did He Become “The Loris Greaud”?
Loris Greaud started with a very impressive educational career. He did not only receive awards but at this time, he also started his professional career. This saved him time and made his career valuable and also influential to others. He developed his projects internationally after he had exhibits in different places like the ICA in London, The Swiss Institute in New York, The Centre Culturel Français in Milan, and also The Galerie Esther Schipper in Berlin.
On January 17, something happened at the Loris Greaud debut of “The Unplayed Notes Museum.” The place was darkly lit for his solo exhibition but the Dallas Contemporary was full of visitors, not until an unexpected moment happened. Out of nowhere, a choreographed riot that was choreographed by Greaud himself was carried out by actors, different stuntmen, and also the museum security that broke out and left everything prepared for the show in pieces.
Greaud is known for theater and grandiosity and he is known to create experiences that are truly unforgettable. He also did the same act during his Palais de Tokyo in Paris show in 2008 where the vending machines dispensed candies which ended up making the galleries smell of the imagined scent of mars. Before his show in Dallas Contemporary, the artist admitted that he was nervous because even though everything was choreographed, this chaos would take place for 40 seconds.
He said, “There is going to be a moment where we are going to lose control, basically. This is where the project really happens.”
This fame and his popularity did not come easy. He worked a lot and made sure that he researched and learned everything to make his art fabulous. Loris is the kind of artist who is considered as a professional architect and a sculpt maker alongside his ability in filmmaking. These are the reason why he is considered as one of the best global artists of his time.
