Alexandre Collet is an artist and scholar living between Greece and France. He is a graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon and of the Visual Studies and Art History department of the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris. He worked as an assistant for documenta 14 and has worked with various institutions, for example the National History of Art Institute (INHA) in France. He has exhibited his work at K-Gold Temporary Gallery in Athens and at the art space Locus Athens, and has collaborated, among others, with brook editions in Paris and with l’Annexe. With photography, video, research an observation as his main media, he moves far from the city, the clubs, the bars and the people and closer to dogs, cats and pigeons, in an effort to find different ways of defining relationships, love and sexuality. These families and kinships transcending the logic of the human/animal-pet binary are at the center of his work. He is particularly interested in the way in which the body can constantly reinvent itself together the dog, the pigeon, and all its other companions. He has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2022).
