Antoine Schmitt

Born in 1961 - France


Antoine Schmitt lives and works in Paris (FR). Installation artist, Antoine Schmitt creates artworks in the form of objects, installations and situations to address the processes of movement and question their intrinsic problematics, of plastic, philosophical or social nature. Heir of kinetic art and cybernetic art, nourished by metaphysical science-fiction, he endlessly interrogates the dynamic interactions between human nature and the nature of reality.

Originally programming engineer in human computer relations and artificial intelligence, he now places the program, a contemporary artistic material and unique by its active quality, at the core of his artworks, to reveal and literally manipulate the forces at stake. With a minimal and precise aesthetics, he asks the question of movement, its causes and its shapes. Antoine Schmitt, alone or through collaborations, has undertaken an
articulation of this approach with more established artistic fields like music, dance, architecture, literature or cinema.

As theoretician, speaker and editor of the gratin.org portal, Antoine Schmitt explores the field of programmed art.

His work is part of the collections of the Espace Gantner (Bourogne, FR), of the Cube (Issy-Mx, FR), of the Paris Municipal Contemporary Art Fund (FMAC), of the Artphilein Foundation (Lugano, IT), and of the Frankel Foundation (USA).
