Éléonore Geissler

Born in 1992 in Paris (France)

Born in 1992 in Paris, where she lives and works, Éléonore Geissler is a multimedia video artist, a graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Paris (2017) and of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris (cum laude, 2018).

Her work is based on a practice of drawing ; her darkly humorous images serve as a medium of research for her videos. Oscillating between installation and film format, her work evokes the idea of films in volume, mixing various techniques of photography and animation, in which no holds are barred when it comes to tricking the viewer's eye. Her wide spectrum of special effects are often made by hand.

Her first short film Alien TV, nominated for the Emile Reynaud Prize (2019), has been screened at numerous international festivals. She participated for two consecutive years in the official Nuit Blanche programme in Paris, with the short film Walking with dragons (2020). She produced the winning project for the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales, Présences circulaires (2021), which entered the permanent collection of the CNES at the Musée des Abattoirs.
