Born in 1985, Manon Recordon lives and works in Paris. She graduated from the Paris Academy of Fine Arts (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris) in 2009. Previously, she obtained a Master in Cinematographic Studies from Paris VII University, and also studied at the Villa Arson, National School of Fine Arts of Nice.
A former resident of the French Academy in Rome - Villa Medici, Recordon is also one of the founders of the artists’ journal M.E.R.C.U.R.E.
Recordon’s interests and artistic practice extend across history, text, film and photography. Her artworks are assemblages and layering of still and moving images, using elements collected from historical archives or archaeological sites, film footages of Impressionist paintings or Ancient Greek sculptures, flashes of collective memory, snippets of news and fragments of modern daily life.
