Mimosa Echard is interested in creating hybrid ecosystems where the living and the non-living, the human and the non-human cohabit. Her works explore areas of contact and contamination between organic and consumer objects, elements that our cultural conventions may perceive as ambivalent or even contradictory. When we look at Mimosa Echard's work, we are initially surprised by these heterogeneous objects, before being seized by the secret relationship between these forms and materials. Gradually, this community of objects emancipates itself from the artist's hand, becoming more fluid and autonomous.
Her work has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions in international institutions such as: Australian Center for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2020) Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris (2019); Dortmunder Kunstverein, Dortmund, (2019); Plateform-L Contemporary Art Center, Seoul (2018); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2019, 2017); Cell Project Space Gallery, London (2017). Her work can be found in the collections of the CNAP Centre national d'art contemporain, the Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris, the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette, the Fondation 70 71 Sadami Art, the Fondation Ettore Fico, the IAC, Villeurbanne /Rhône-Alpes, etc.
Mimosa Echard is the winner of the Marcel Duchamp Prize 2022.
