Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann (Born 1980 in Paris, France. Lives and works in Paris and London)
The references and materials employed by Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann attest to a profound inclination towards modernist aesthetic without, however, becoming the subject. She carries out research involving several fields including history, sociology, psychology and design driven by a reflection on forms of narrative, the relationship of analogies and macrostructures. Her projects function as apparitions and reminiscences related to design, cinema, literature and art history, opening a space conducive to the emergence of narrative and discursive nodes.
A graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts of Paris Cergy in 2006, she was the recipient of the AWARE Prize in 2017 (Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions). Her work has been shown in numerous solo and collective exhibitions internationally including BEELER Gallery (Columbus, Ohio, USA), MUSEION (Bolzano, IT), MUDAM (LUX), Maison Louis Carré with Lab’Bel (FR), Syntax (Lisbon, PT), FUTURA (Praha, CZ), Centre Pompidou (Metz, FR), Hepworth Wakefield (UK), @KCUA Gallery (Kyoto, Japan), La Galerie (Noisy-Le-Sec, FR), VIA FARINI (Milano, IT), Passerelle CAC (Brest, FR), Palais de Tokyo and MAMVP (Paris, FR), MRAC (Sérignan, FR), IAC (Villeurbanne, FR), MMSU (Rijeka, HR), Benaki Museum (Thessaloniki, GR), Gesso Art Space (Vienna, AT). She participated in a residency program at Le Pavilion at Palais de Tokyo in 2011-12, and was also the recipient of a research residency at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto, Japan in 2016. She has also been the focus of a solo presentation at FIAC/Lafayette, Grand Palais, Paris (2015). LBH is represented by Galerie Allen in Paris and is also teaching at The New School_Parsons Paris.
