Agathe Simon creates experiences which question the boundaries of the lived experience and the senses, by radically reinventing the connection with the self, the others and the unknown. These individual and communal experiences open onto another reality – via the commemoration of fictional personalities (The Polar Project, its lecture-performance and its tribute ceremonies), the celebration of the body (Heart is HomeEcstasies), and participative experiences (Day 11, Day 10, Year 1, Trilogy of Fire). This portfolio presents a selection of recent projects.

Agathe Simon is a Paris-based artist, born in 1977. After a decade of art projects throughout the world, she starts a partnership with the art company The Group in Paris in 2017. She is also conducting artistic creation workshops at the Sorbonne University.

Agathe Simon is currently preparing projects in partnership with ‘Les Voûtes’ (a Parisian alternative art venue), the Poetry House (Paris), ‘the “C.N.R.S.” (the largest governmental research organisation in France), the Paris Cergy National Graduate School of Arts, the University of Cergy-Pontoise, and the Museum of Non-conformist Art (Saint Petersburg, Russia). These projects will include performances, films, and exhibitions.
