For the Zaman/Time exhibition at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, Agathe Simon creates six charcoal drawings entitled Ecstasies.

For this first series of her Uncontrolled Drawings, she documents in a radical way  her sexual pleasure, drawn ‘in situation’. Her approach is to let her orgasms ‘draw themselves”.

Agathe Simon is a Paris-based artist, born in 1977. After a decade of art projects throughout the world, she starts a partenrship 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 “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.
