Thomas Garnier

Born in 1991 in Paris (France)

Thomas Garnier is a contemporary artist with a background in architecture. After gaining his state architectural diploma in 2016, he took a complementary training at Le Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains.

His work is often classified as partaking of a new, post-digital Romanticism. It interrogates the essence of the local, history and the role of memory in the gradual institution of a globalised and desensitised world. His practice is like that of an artist/researcher or a heteropologue, as defined by Foucault in his text on heterotopias.
