Mathilde Lavenne

Promotion Alain Resnais


Mathilde Lavenne

Born in 1982 in Amiens (France)

After initially focusing her artistic practice on drawing, in 2011 she directed her approach more towards new technology and digital tools with the directing of animation film and interactive installations. In the same way as archaeology draws as much on Earth science as the Natural and Social sciences, Mathilde Lavenne approaches the notion of journey in terms of excavation, matter and error. Whatever the medium, she questions the turmoil that stirs us to descend the strata of the earth to discover our individual history.
After a Master's degree in Arts and Culture, she obtained a DNSEP with distinction from the School of Fine Arts in Tourcoing and a Post-graduate diploma from the Decorative arts school in Strasbourg.
She was awarded the Pierre Schaeffer 'brouillon d'un rêve' prize in 2014. Her works have been shown in major exhibitions and numerous festivals such as the Salon de Montrouge, the Tampere Film festival in Finland, the Internationale Kurzfilmwoche Regensburg in Germany, at the Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine de la Ville de Paris, etc. In October 2014 she joined the Alain Resnais class of Le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains in Tourcoing.
