Mark Geffraiud is a French multidisciplinary artist working in installation, sculpture, text, artist books, projections, readings, and collaborative performances. His open-ended works explore disappearance, emptiness, misunderstanding, and false fictions–especially as these ideas relate to the circulation of images. For example, his 2007 work Les Renseignements Généraux–named after the French secret service literally meaning “global information”–is a collection of appropriated images he never intends to finish or publish, and whose design takes on various forms such as a textbook stripped of text.
He has had solo exhibitions at Westbeth Center for the Arts in New York, Galerie Saint-Severin in Paris, Walden Affairs in The Hague, Jeu de Paume in Paris, Artissima in Torino, gb agency in Paris The Garden in Vilnius, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and others. His work has been included in group exhibitions at venues such as De Appel in Amsterdam, Rowing Projects, in London, Brukenthal National Museum in Sibiu, Museum of Modern Art in Antwerp, San Francisco Art Institute, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Bolzano, and Kadist Art Foundation in Paris.
