"Places, beings and moments; sounds, images and temporality combine to shape the world. How can the tools of filmmaking integrate reality to change how it is perceived? Ariane Michel suggests looking at her works together to consider how they are produced and to think about this question that she has been looking for years to answer, whether in cinemas, art centres, in the metro or in forests."

The artist and filmmaker Ariane Michel was born in 1973 in Paris and currently lives in Esquibien. After studying at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (Paris) and a stint at the Pavillon – a research cell at the Palais de Tokyo, Ariane Michel has created work in which the narrative techniques of cinema play an important role, inscribing them in her videos, installation devices, film or performances. Whether her project The Screening —a mirror projection in a forest, her feature film Les Hommes, or her aquarium Les Lutétiens which creates an encounter in a cinemascope format between living people and a fossilised setting, they all explore the same concern: through immersion, projection and montage, to provide those who approach them with an experience that distorts their senses.
Her works have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (New York); the Minsheng Art Museum in Shanghai; the Tate Modern in London; Art Basel (Switzerland); Aichi Triennale (Japan); in Paris during Nuits Blanches, the Jeu de Paume arts centre, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard and in public areas in the metro, as well as in film festivals, including the FID Marseille (Grand Prix 2006), Locarno, Rotterdam, Vancouver and Lisbon festivals. Her film Les Hommes was released nationally in France in 2008 (Shellac distribution). Galerie Jousse Entreprise in Paris represents Ariane Michel.
