Pauline Guerrier is based between Paris and Lisbon. She was born in 1990 in Clamart in a family of artists. Her father, a sculptor, and her mother, a choreographer, as well as her grandmother, a ceramist, and her grandfather, a painter, introduced her to each of their practices at an early age. She entered the Beaux Art de Paris in 2009 in Giuseppe Penone’s studio, which she attended for her initial three years. She then joined Ann Veronica Janssen’s studio until her 5th year graduation in June 2014.
Pauline Guerrier is nomadic and sets up her studio according to her travels, in Italy, Morocco, Portugal, Chile, Benin and Senegal. She observes and learns from weavers, glassblowers, engravers, glassmakers and mosaicists.
In a perpetual quest for knowledge of the world’s craft techniques, Pauline Guerrier confronts the knowledge of yesterday with the world of today and tomorrow: ecology, science, faith, superstition, are subjects that feed her research. She explores drawing, sculpture but also performance.
According to the artist, a medium is only the vector of a message, a language that she uses, an alphabet of symbols to transmit an idea.
Pauline Guerrier participates today in numerous international fairs such as Art Paris, Art Genève, ArcoLisboa, Arco Madrid, Istanbul Art Fair, Sp-Arte Sao Paulo, PAD, Parcours Saint- Germain. Her work can be seen at the Villa Datris, Foundation Zinsou in Benin, the Domaine des Étangs, the Moco in Montpellier, in the Artissima collection, at the Château La Coste, or at the Cobra Museum in Amsterdam.
Her work has been represented by Foco Gallery in Lisbon for four years. She also works in collaboration for particular projects with RX Gallery and Clavé Fine Art Gallery in Paris.
