Justine Emard (b.1987, France) is a visual artist. She lives and works in Paris. Her artworks explore the new relationships that are being established between our lives and technology. By combining different image medias – from photography to video and virtual reality – she situates her work at the crossroads between robotics, objects, live 3D prints, organic life and artificial intelligence. In 2017, she is a winner of the residence Hors-les-murs by the Institut Français for a project in Tokyo.
Her work had been exhibited at the Moscow Biennale of contemporary art, the NRW Forum (Dusseldorf), the National Museum of Singapore, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the institute Itaú Cultural (São Paulo), the Cinémathèque Québécoise (Montréal), the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), the MOT Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin) and the Barbican Center (London).
Justine Emard creates a meeting place between two forms of life. Human and non-human interact through the interposed screens of a video installation. Through this interaction between their respective sensibilities, the artist proposes an intimate and poetic dialogue between human and robot.
