Dorian Gaudin

Dorian Gaudin (b. 1986 in Paris, France) is a New York-based artist who works in sculpture and installation. He studied at the École Nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris (2009), the École Nationale supérieure des Beaux Arts, Paris (2011) and Le Fresnoy, Tourcoing, France (2011). His installations often include masterfully engineered machines that lack any explicit purpose, yet move spontaneously, animated from within. These autonomous and unpredictable works of art allow us to question the nature of objects and whether we engage with machines as active users or passive viewers. Gaudin’s work has been shown at galleries and institutions nationally and internationally, including Palais de Tokyo, Paris, the Guangzhou Triennial (2018).
