Born in 1992 and trained at the Dijon School of Fine Arts, Amélie Berrodier has a large number of exhibitions and residencies to her credit.

Each of his works engages him in unexpected encounters. Playing with the porosity between photography and video, Amélie Berrodier questions the image and the staging of oneself, revisiting the history and social function of the portrait. It captures singular moments, where individuals relax, reveal themselves and stop controlling their appearance, their image and their behavior. This moment when, freed from the demands of their “social self” they become more openly themselves.

In residence in Vénissieux from autumn 2019 to spring 2020, she organized a collection of photos of classes from the 19th century to the present day. Using this material that is both documentary and moving, she initiated a work on individuality in institutional representations with hundreds of children. Putting them to the test of pose and photographic time, she has created new video works, presented this fall at the Art Centre in the exhibition Cheese!
