The work of French artist Fanny Allié shows “traces of a fleeting moment, an ephemeral existence and most of all, a narrative that links us to each other in our daily life.” The artist says of her recent collage work, “I tear apart and re-assemble pieces of newsprint images to create characters and habitat structures inspired by my observation of people living on the streets in New York City. In the creation of new forms using existing images, my focus is on the weight and the belongings we carry, including our own body, from one place to another, throughout our life journey.”

Allié has had solo exhibitions at A.I.R Gallery, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, Roger Smith Arts Space, Chashama, Eye Level BQE in New York and St Eustache Church in Paris, France. Her work has been featured in a number of New York group exhibitions including Freight + Volume Gallery, BRIC Rotunda Gallery, Dekalb Gallery/Pratt Institute, The Bronx Museum, and Snug Harbor, among others. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, NY Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine, Hyperallergic, Le Monde Diplomatique, DNA Info and Marie Claire Italy. Her public bench A Bench for the night, both a sculpture and a functional bench, is currently on view in front of MOMA PS1 until May 1st, 2016. Allié was awarded the 2015-16 AIR Gallery fellowship.
