Poésie Plateforme organizes, under the supervision of Jérôme Mauche, singular tête à tête between an artist and a personality from other fields of thought.
The Pernod Ricard Foundation, as part of the “Poetry Platform” cycle, is offering an exceptional encounter between Fabienne Audéoud, visual artist and musician, and Marlène Saldana, actress and director.
These two singular creators cultivate the uncertain, the excessive, the absurd as political weapons. An acute sense of freedom and experimentation brings them together. A passion for interpretation, representations and forms animates them. The language is a place of outbidding, because it is also a test of truth.
Fabienne Audéoud develops a multidisciplinary artistic practice with a critical and cryptic dimension, where musical composition is essential. She integrates painting, performance, writing, video, dance and clothing.
Since 2017, solo exhibitions have been presented with Mécènes du Sud, Sète and Marseille; CAC – La Synagogue de Delme; Island, Brussels; Tonus, Paris; La Salle de bains, Lyon and Karst, Plymouth. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions in France and abroad: Galerie Sultana, Paris; Villa Arson, Nice; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Galerie High Art, Paris.
