Born in 1973, she lives and works in Paris.
Following studies at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs and a stint at the Pavillon, a research cell at the Palais de Tokyo, Ariane Michel has created work in which the narrative techniques of cinema play an important role, inscribing them in her videos, installations and performances. These works, from her project
The Screening – a mirror projection in a forest – to her feature film Les Hommes (released theatrically in 2008) to her aquarium Les Lutétiens, which creates an encounter between living persons and a fossilised setting, all explore the same concern: through immersion, projection and montage, they provide those who approach them with an experience which decentres their perception.
