Jeanne Vicerial's first gallery show in Paris opens at Galerie Templon
“This army of presences stand tall, displaying their scars of sutured threads. Clad in their ‘armors’, they march proudly into the future, charting a history of femininity,” -- Jeanne Vicerial

PARIS.- Templon started 2023 decked in Jeanne Vicerial’s ebony black and white. For her very first gallery show in Paris, the artist is unveiling fifteen new textile sculptures in various formats.

The first person in France to be awarded a PhD in practice-based fashion design, in 2019, and artist-in-residence at the prestigious Villa Medici in 2020, Jeanne Vicerial, 31, has already garnered widespread recognition for her avant-garde approach.

She used her research to overthrow textile industry codes, questioning the made-to-measure/ready-to-wear dichotomy. Her practice then shifted focus onto the place of women and the female body in society, regularly involving artists such as set designers, perfumers, and musicians in her projects.

Born in 1991, Jeanne Vicerial lives and works in Paris. Her passion for clothes design began when she was a teenager. After studying costume design then obtaining a master's in clothes design at the Paris École des Arts Décoratifs in 2015, she started a research project which resulted in a Sciences, Arts, Creation and Research PhD in 2019. She took her research further by teaming up with the mechatronics department at MINES ParisTech to develop a patented robotised process for producing made-to-measure clothes with no waste. She also chose an artistic path which led her to work with Hussein Chalayan before founding research and design studio CLINIQUE VESTIMENTAIRE.

In addition to producing her own creations, she has quickly established an array of partnerships with artists working in different fields. Her work has been widely shown, including at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2018), Villa Medici and Palazzo Farnese in Rome (2020) and Collection Lambert in Avignon (2021), and was recently included in the Centre national des arts plastiques collection in Paris as well as the FRAC Auvergne collection. 2021 saw the first major solo exhibition of her work, at Magasins Généraux in Pantin, near Paris.

Jeanne Vicerial’s work has featured in several group exhibitions in 2022, including as part of the Festival International des Textiles Extraordinaires at Musée Bargoin in Clermont-Ferrand (until 26 March 2023), and at the MaximiliansForum in Munich, Fondation Martell in Cognac, Ballroom Project in Antwerp and Maison Guerlain in Paris. In 2023 her work will be shown at the Musée International des Arts Modestes in Sète (14 February - 17 September 2023).

As part of Mondes Nouveaux, the ambitious new programme of the French Ministry of Culture, she collaborated with Louise Hernandez on a transdisciplinary project combining installation, film and performance: Gisant.e.s une Re-Naissance features four sculptures on display at the Basilica of Saint-Denis near Paris from 1 to 31 December 2022.

Jeanne Vicerial will also be taking part in the group show Au-delà, Rituels pour un monde nouveau at Lafayette Anticipations – Fondation Galeries Lafayette in Paris opening on 14 February 2023.

Jeanne Vicerial’s first monograph will be published in February 2023 to mark the exhibition, with a special contribution from philosopher Emanuele Coccia and an interview with historian and researcher Ida Soulard.
