Roxane Borujerdi

With a predilection for mediums allowing mobility as well as maximal immediacy between an idea and its visual realization, Roxane Borujerdi is developing her practice through drawings, sculptures, videos and performances. During her artist residency at FRISE she is presenting a series of drawings.

Roxane Borujerdi’s repertoire of forms stems from nature, from picture books, magazines, children’s games, sceneries, conventional symbols and simple geometric figures, i.e. from what we usually characterise as everyday life. It is immediately accessible and lends the works a familiar appearance, but at the same time also something strange. The artistic vocabulary is reduced. Triangles, circles, curves, lines, rectangles, fruits, birds and plants form the main elements of her work. Based on a fundamental corpus of signs and colours, the artist redistributes the forms across different mediums and into different states; she reconfigures them on the level of space and lets them circulate.

Roxane Borujerdi graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris in 2006. Since 2005, her work has been exhibited at Fondation Cartier, Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard, Centre Georges Pompidou, The Hospital Club (London), Maison Descartes, Institut Français d’Amsterdam, Instants chavirés (Montreuil), etc. Her projects have regularly been supported by French public institutions, including Centre National des Arts Plastiques, Direction Régionale des Affaires culturelles and Mairie de Paris.
