Nicolas Tourte

Born in 1977 - France


Nicolas Tourte was born in 1977 in Charleville-Mézières (town of the poet Arthur Rimbaud), France. He lives and works in France.

In 2004 after studying at the Fine Arts school of Valenciennes, he continued to experiment installation, sculpture and drawing with an emphasis on information technology and the use of photo and video media, then develops a series of contextual querying facilities with humor and mockery of man's place in the universe and the concept of virtual.

One of these first devices was installed in 2005 at the Mir Station, ensues specific collaborations including the creation of an image of 32 meter long co-produced by the city of Caen. In 2009, the Fine Arts museum of Caen proposed him a "carte blanche" during the exhibition Giacometti "in perspective". In 2010 during the exhibition "intérieur jour, extérieur nuit" he creates on the demand of Pygmalion /les Bains Douche, a set of pieces closely related with architecture.

Due to the ORCCA Artothèque he exhibited in France, Spain and the Czech Republic, he had a residency at Usine Utopik. In 2011, he received the grant aid for its oriented landscape project, "land(e)scape / transformium." Meanwhile he made a set of devices using video and photography for Hermès, which will be an international traveling exhibition.

He exhibited at the Museum of Louviers in 2012 the result of work developed during a residency of six weeks at Villa Caldéronn actively involved in residency program "Voyez-vous", Transat vidéo and prepared an exhibition project for Lille 3000 / Fantastic.
