About the artist
After ten years as a set designer for opera, concerts, theatre performances, and contemporary art exhibitions, French artist Philippe Quesne created Vivarium Studio in 2003 in Paris, a laboratory for theatrical innovation which features painters, actors, dancers, musicians and a dog. Since 2014 he runs Nanterre-Amandiers National Centre for Dramatic Art near Paris.
The performances by Philippe Quesne showcase simple yet fantastic images – an improvised amusement park in a deserted snowy landscape, explorers in potted plant jungles that re-enact the Big Bang, or a thirty-year-old Serge playing in his apartment with a toy car that draws circles with a sparkler. In his creations a childlike amazement in front of the magic of theater meets with a gentle melancholy about the limitations of mankind.
