Mathieu Roquigny (°1982) is French photographer and conceptual artist who lives and works in Paris. He graduated with distinction in 2005 from the institute Saint Luc in Tournai (Belgium), section photography and animated images.
Mathieu Roquigny lets coincidence, humor and the everyday interact with each other. The game, the diversion of objects, but especially the instinct of a collector of objects and images are always present in his work . The use of a minimal formal vocabulary and modest materials gives his works an apparent simplicity which only reinforces their formidable effectiveness.
The artist penetrates a performative field where everything around can be subject to a second reading, to an entirely different interpretation, intensely deeper and more essential.
This impression created while passing time, focusing on fragments of the ephemeral and banal, reveals an insatiable sensation of fragility and, strangely, of attraction and joyful beauty.
It is this polysemy which gives all its richness and originality to the work of Mathieu Roquigny.
Roquigny took part in numerous exhibitions in Frans and abroad. In 2015 he won a Cristal Prize of the 60th Salon de Montrouge and a Public Prize of the Sciences Po Prize of Contemporary Art, Paris.
This is the second solo exhibition of the young artist in Light Cube, where will be showing his new and recent conceptual work.
