Mimosa Echard

Mimosa Echard draws on biological research, histories of experimental cinema and her own life to create works that play with the relationship between sexuality, synthesis, and perception.

Working across various media—from sculpture to installation to video games—her work is driven by ongoing and contradictory processes of absorption, accumulation and circulation, observed in phenomena as diverse as popular culture, metabolic systems or electromagnetic spectra.

Attentive to the invisible or latent potential of the materials she uses, her assemblages and installations displace the capacity of language to know its object, allowing new and ‘unnatural’ associations to proliferate.

Recent solo and group presentations of Mimosa Echard’s work at international institutions include Lafayette Anticipations – Fondation d’entreprise des Galeries Lafayette, Paris (2024, 2016, 2014), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2022), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2022, 2017, 2012); Collection Lambert, Avignon (2021); Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris (2021, 2019); Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2020); Le CRÉDAC, Ivry (2020); Dortmunder Kunstverein, Dortmund (2019); Platform-L Contemporary Art Center, Seoul (2018); Cell Project Space, London (2017).

Mimosa Echard was the recipient of the Prix Marcel Duchamp 2022.

The first monograph on the artist’s work will be published at the end of 2024.
