Born in 1974. Lives and works in Paris.
Printing / Multiples Screen printing, video, sound, painting…
Julien Sirjacq’s artistic work takes place on various platforms, modulated according to current inspirations and the artistic partnerships he has developed. In the realm of sound, he co-founded ‘The Bells Angels’ in 2009 with artist Simon Bernheim (musician from the group "10lec6", Ed Banger label). Together, they respond to commissions that allow them to develop their editorial strategies within exhibitions: sound productions, installations, radio workshops, visual identity, exhibition catalogues etc. In his painting, printing and photogrammes practice, he works in a duo with Thomas Fougeirol under the name ‘Suzzanne Wirz’.
After teaching at the Beaux-Arts in Bourges and Angers, he took over the direction of the screen- printing studio at Beaux-Arts de Paris, where he coordinates a publishing practice module looking into production / distribution issues in publication in partnership with with Aurélie Pagès and Catherine de Smet (graphic design historian). The studio focuses on both photosensitive work and painting and takes into account the obsolescence of mediums in the digital age. It therefore creates a bridge between mechanical, chemical and digital processes. His extensive involvement in the school is supplemented by the organisation of lectures on the issues of image semiology, performance and subcultures.
