Since the early 2000s, Loris Gréaud has developed a singular trajectory in the field of international contemporary creation. His work is characterized by prioritizing ‘’projects’’, thus redefining spaces, economy, temporality and the art’s ways of materializing and dissolving, his main wish being to systematically erase and attempt to merge the lines and boundaries lingering between fiction and reality.
Loris Gréaud’s projects have resulted in significant individual exhibitions. He is the first artist who was granted full use of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (France) for his project Cellar Door (2008-2015), which he further developed at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in London (UK), the Vienna Kunsthalle (Austria), the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen (Switzerland) and La Conservera Museum in Murcia (Spain). He is also the only artist who has exhibited jointly in the Musée du Louvre and in the National Museum for Modern Art housed in the Pompidou Center in Paris (France) with the internationally acclaimed double exhibition project [I] (2013).
In 2015, he took over the whole gallery space of the Dallas Contemporary (United States) with the ambitious project The Unplayed Notes Museum, whose radical and strangely equivocal aspect made a great impression. Finally, in 2016, he produced a specific project Sculpt for LACMA in Los Angeles, his first major solo exhibition on the west coast of the United States. The artist took part in many renowned group shows including: A Certain State of the World?, Garage Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow (Russia, 2009), The Wizard of Oz, San Fransisco CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Arts (United States, 2009), Altermodern, London Tate Triennal (UK, 2010), ILLUMInations, 54th Venice Biennale (Italy, 2011), The World Belongs to You, Palazzo Grassi – François Pinault Foundation in Venice (Italy, 2011), X_Sound: Jonh Cage, Nam June Paik and After, Seoul Nam June Paik Art Center (South Korea, 2012), Prima Materia, La Punta della Dogana – François Pinault Foundation in Venice (Italy, 2013), and Art or Sound, Prada Foundation, Venice (Italy, 2014).
