Damien Jibert

Damien Jibert, born in 1989 in Dijon, (France) graduated from EMA Fructidor, Chalon-sur-Saône (France) in 2014 (visual arts). He lives and works in Lille (France).

Damien Jibert creates a universe half-way between cinema and the digital world characterised by a lo-fi aesthetics and black humour. He explores ways of articulating narratives out of fragmented fictions peopled by unusual, almost naïve characters, struggling with difficult realities and their own loneliness. Jibert’s work has been shown at the Hors Pistes festival at the Centre Pompidou, at the Mulhouse Biennale and at the Gaïté-Lyrique in Paris.
