Guillaume Barth

Born in 1985 in Colmar (France)

“My ideas are constructed out of different places and have original forms that seem to set them apart from each other, but looking more closely, their invisible elements come together in one ensemble.”
Guillaume Barth was born in Colmar in 1985. He lives and works in Sélestat. Having graduated from the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg (Art major) in 2012, he is now continuing his researches at Le Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains. The video Le Deuxième Monde Elina (2015) will be shown in spring 2021 juxtaposed with a famous Aztec sculpture, in collaboration with the Musée du Quai-Branly and the Fondation François Schneider. The installation L’Œil de Simorgh has been acquired by the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain in Strasbourg and is on show as of June 2021. The trees of Baumschule 2016 will be planted with children in the forest of Sélestat – the artist’s home town – in November 2021. They constitute the idea behind Nouvelle Forêt.
