Artistic CV

Of French-English origins, Raphaële Bidault-Waddington is born in Rouen in 1971 and lives in Paris.

 

A multifaceted artist, 360° researcher, author and futurist, Raphaële Bidault-Waddington create art-based and future research laboratories and collaborate with structures in France and abroad (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, UK, USA, Mexico, Uruguay, Ivory Coast, Georgia, Iran, Dubai, China)

 

Some labs are more formal, others more conceptual or collaborative, but each follows a specific exploratory orientation, and can experiment collaborations between each other’s or with other structures.

Due to this temporality, exhibitions listed below are thus sporadic.
