Augustin Gimel

*1974, Paris, France. Lives and works in Paris, France.

Augustin Gimel graduated from the École National Supérieure des Beaux-arts and from the École National Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs of Paris.

Working with videos and installations, his art offers a reflexion on the limits of visual and sonic perception using frame-by-frame editing, repetition and combinatories. His editing technique reveals the inner poetry of rough materials by bringing together different representation systems; new entities appear over a blink.
