Camille Blatrix


Camille Blatrix was born in 1984, he lives and work in Paris. He graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Paris (ENSBA) in 2011. Camille Blatrix is represented by Balice Hertling gallery.

Camille Blatrix’s sculptures, which he refers to as “emotional objects”, move tenuously between more affective and descriptive tenors. They are constructed with both a highly technical precision while being subverted my more instinctive intrusions, as if an exaggeratedly industrial workmanship had been invented to cover for a vast underlying register of emotional intensity. His works, most often in wood, resin, and aluminum, are assembled and processed by way of advanced machinery and technical processes such as 3D modelling and wood marquetry.


Blatrix (b. 1984, France) lives and works in Paris. He has had solo shows at the Centre d’Art Contemporain du Synagogue de Delme (Delme, France, 2021), Kunsthalle Basel (Basel, Switzerland, 2020), Lafayette Anticipations (Paris, France, 2019), and at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art (San Francisco, USA, 2016); his work has also appeared in group shows at the Renaissance Society (Chicago, USA, 2021), the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris (Paris, France, 2019), the Palais de Tokyo (Paris, France, 2018), and Sculpture Center (New York, USA, 2014), among others. His work also was shown in the 2015 Biennale de Lyon. In 2014, he received the Prix Fondation d’entreprise Ricard.
