Victoire Gonzalvez is a multidisciplinary artist who questions our interactions with the «standard». She works on shapes, materials, texture, appearance in general to understand our relationship with senses.


The consistency of butter in a theme park setting, the special effects of a mutilated eye on the screen, the mechanical qualities of a sneaker, the standard of a synthetic hymen for mass distribution, deployed patterns  throughout a practice of sculpture and video that reflect our sanitized, calibrated spaces. Nourished by the effects workshops of Cinecittà, she uses the fake to observe the norm. She looks for ab-normal by being sentimental. 


After receiving her MFA in Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paris, she becomes a member of the Symbiose – Complex Materials, Humans and Environment research group within the EnsadLab Laboratory. She pursues an artistic practice-based research on tactile experience through the surface aspect of materials. She is currently a member of the Weissenhof program at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste of Stuttgart.
