(ENG) Mark Geffriaud (Vitry Sur Seine, France, 1977). Lives and works in Paris.

Geffriaud’s works allude to the compartmentalized and arbitrary nature of institutional processes and cultural transmission. His pieces borrow elements from such entities but their particular dynamic provokes cognitive processes that subvert them. The misunderstanding, the shuffle, the lucid, the super-position, these tropes are the critical tools that the artist deposits in the hands of the observer, championing a more lax understanding regarding the association of knowledge. Geffriaud has had individual shows at the
gallery GB agency and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. He has shown in group exhibitions such as the Lyon Biennial (France) or in the center of contemporary art Nicolaj in Copenhagen (Denmark).
