Aymeric Ebrard is a Paris-based artist working with various media, mainly installations. Ebrard is interested in mythology, archeology, subjective lesser stories which in his oeuvre resonate the mystery, enigma of origins, and uncertainty of real. Aymeric Ebrard is the winner of the 2012 Villa Medicis "Hors les Murs" Program of the French Institute (French Ministery of Culture) and of the Grand Price of the 55th Salon de Montrouge (Paris) in 2010. He has shown his work in France (Palais de Tokyo, Musée d’Art Moderne, Galerie Patricia Dorfmann, Galerie Praz-Delavallade, etc) and internationally: Australia, Bulgaria, Morocco, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, etc.
Aymeric Ebrard will realize an installation of folding screens inspired by the Marion Dorn geometric modernist rugs used by Pier Paolo Pasolini as a central set for his film "Salò". From sketches and maquettes to big scale model, using as pigments grounds and soils from places marked by a dramatic history around the Mediterranean and Europe, the different elements made in the studio will be assembled on the stage of the amphitheater in an open-air installation, which will be the set and scene of a site-specific performance that will be filmed and screened in a gallery in Paris along with the reconstructed sculpture.
