This Month

Romain Bobichon will be in residence in Back Lane West throughout May

Romain Bobichon
Lives and works in France.

RomainĀ  is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in the fields of painting, sculpture and music. He is interested in historical contexts and the material properties of the spaces of diffusion. Romain Bobichon is curious, ready to experiment in spaces such as exhibition spaces, books, streets. He lived in Quimper, Rennes, Clermont-Ferrand, Lyon, Toulouse, Nantes and he now lives in Saint-Beauzile (Tarn). He has been exhibited in institutions, artist run-spaces, worked with friends and he alternates between solo works and collaborations.

In Redruth, Romain Bobichon will start a new project about power. The residency will be a time-based research to experiment with the exhibition space as an editing space.
The content will be based on intimate experiences Romain Bobichon had with his native environment, thoughts on people who have the power, fictional contexts to develop writing processes and a physical approach to edit.
The Back Lane West exhibition space will serve as a performative space to paint, to draw, to make collages and to activate the in-process content.
