Born in 1978, Elise Morin lives and works in Paris.
Trained at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, at Central Saint Martins Col- lege in London, and then at Tokyo’s National University of Fine Arts, Elise Morin develops installations and videos marked with references to the evolving forms of contemporary landscapes. Relationships to place and modes of production are intrinsic components of her work.
They bring about reflection on the relationship which is maintained between creation to the commons and on the role of the esthetic in comprehending and evaluating practices and spaces. A wider poetic approach is based on the workings of patterns, time, and light.
Her artistic work was recently recognized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Prize for the Best of Lab Art and Sustainabiity in 2012. Elise Morin has exposed her work at the Centquatre, the Jeu de Paume, and the Grand Palais in France and at the Museums of Contemporary Art of Bucharest and Tokyo.
