Louise Siffert


Portrait of Louise Siffert

Louise Siffert is a self-taught set designer and alumna of the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts de Paris. Through theatrical and burlesque settings, her performances assemble and raise questions on current topics such as the maddening corporate world, the pursuit of well-being, familiar places… Anchoring her work in scientific and sociological thinking (queer theory, gender studies, de-colonization studies, etc.) she creates characters with exacerbated personalities, overexploiting the linguistic and behavioral codes assigned to them. Among other venues, her work has been shown in the collections of Centre Nationale des Arts Plastique (CNAP) and Centre for Contemporary Visual Arts (CAPC) at Bordeaux.
