Définitif, donc provisoire

Grégory Sugnaux
Grégory Sugnaux, Fri Art Kunsthalle 2019

Grégory Sugnaux’s (*1989) Définitif, donc provisoire is a series of in-site interventions and paintings produced between 2018 and 2019. The pictorial work is based on an improvised archive of chalk drawings made on the ground by children, spotted out and photographed by the artist as he goes out in the city. This exhibition is his first solo show in an institution.

Gregory Sugnaux lives and works in Fribourg. After a residency at the art school la Cambre in Brussels, he obtained a Bachelor's degree from the art school in Valais (ECAV) in 2013 and a Master's degree in Bern (HKB) in 2017. In 2015, he received the Kiefer Hablitzel prize and won an artistic residency the following year in Berlin. The City of Fribourg granted him a residency at the Jean Tinguely Atelier of the Cité internationale des arts in Paris, from September 2019. Grégory Sugnaux has exhibited in many independent art spaces, notably in Lokal-int, Bienne (2019), in Kunsthalle Marcel Duchamp, Cully (2018), and in the group exhibitions Fribi White Card, Fri Art, Fribourg, and Jeunes Pousses, Centre d'Art Contemporain d'Yverdon-les-bains in 2017. Since 2016, he has been co-curator of the artspace WallRiss in Fribourg.
