Virginie Barré's work feeds itself through literary fictions, cinema references and popular culture. She recodifies those influences freely. Childhood is also a recurrent element in her work, which she links to other concepts and formats such as color or games. She works with different techniques as sculpture, film or drawing. Active since the mid-1990s, her practice is deeply influenced by movie directors as Stanley Kubrick, Federico Fellini or Hayao Miyazaki, as well as her interest in graphic novels. She herself has realised comic strips from the early 2000s, bringing together real and fictional characters. In recent years and in parallel to her foray in the field of filmmaking, more abstract installations, assemblages of manufactured and handmade objects, arise in her practice where remains visible her interest in Japanese culture.
