Claire Trotignon is an artist originally from Rochefort, France, a city with a 'very XVII century architecture style'. She has now been living in Paris for five years. She studied Art History for a year at the University of Poitiers and then attended the École des Beaux Arts de Quimper, to finally graduate from the École des Beaux Arts de Tours in 2008. She has collaborated numerous times with the French artist, Nils Guadagnin, with whom she also inaugurated an experimental gallery called ‘White Office’ during their studies.
Her practice conveys notions of space through Architecture, landscape and mapping - somewhere between the plan and the volume - in a back and forth process between the past and the future. Her work is expressed through the use of drawing, collage, screen-printing and installation, often in situ.
