Artist

Alexandre Joly

Alexandre Joly was born in Saint-Julien-en-Genevois in 1977, and lives and works in Geneva. His work combines sculpture and sound installations. The artist often creates site-specific works that explore the aesthetic, ethical, spiritual, magical and ritualistic relationship between humans and nature.

For his sculptures, Alexandre Joly constructs a realm of hybrid phantasmagoria, where poetry and imagination come to life - transmitted through the sound channels of his installations. His work is imbued with wildlife imagery and textures. This appeal to nature and its materials enables the artist to create beings with a benevolent presence which plunge the viewer into a visual and sensory journey.
