Born in 1991, Jeanne Vicerial lives and works in Paris. Her passion for clothes design began when she was a teenager. After studying costume design then obtaining a master's in clothes design at the Paris École des Arts Décoratifs in 2015, she started a research project which resulted in a Sciences, Arts, Creation and Research PhD. Her thesis, defended in 2019, questions the mechanisms at work in the design of contemporary clothing and proposes an alternative to the made-to-measure/ready-to-wear dichotomy associated with fast-fashion culture. She took her research further by teaming up with the mechatronics department at MINES ParisTech to develop a patented robotised process for producing made-to-measure clothes with no waste. She also chose an artistic path which led her to work with Hussein Chalayan and then found research and design studio Clinique vestimentaire. In addition to producing her own creations, she has quickly established an array of partnerships with artists working in different fields, including photographers, sculptors, performers, choreographers, musicians and perfumers. Jeanne Vicerial was the artist-in-residence at the French Academy in Rome, at Villa Medici, in 2019-2020. Her work has been widely shown, including at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2018), Villa Medici and Palazzo Farnese in Rome (2020) and Collection Lambert in Avignon (2021), and was recently included in the Centre National des Arts Plastiques collection in Paris.

GROUP SHOW – La Fin est dans le commencement et cependant on continue
This multi-sensory project approaches the human being as a tool of perception and a tracer of possibilities. Based on our natural perceptions represented by the 5 senses – sight, touch, hearing, smell and taste – the invited personalities from various disciplines reveal their perception of these senses by making it a rule not to stop at a specific medium: they are designers, visual artists, light designers, sound artists, textile designers, dancers and botanists.

GALERIE TEMPLON ANNOUNCES THE REPRESENTATION OF ARTIST AND CLOTHES DESIGNER JEANNE VICERIAL
Galerie Templon is delighted to announce that it is representing French artist Jeanne Vicérial, a clothes designer and researcher.
She was selected for a residency at the prestigious Villa Medici in 2020, and at not yet 30 is the first person in France to be awarded a PhD in the practice of fashion design. She develops a protean body of work, forging links between design, crafts, fashion, the arts and sciences. Baroque and unsettling, her creations are designed as works of art rooted in innovative textiles and textures. They address contemporary environmental issues and the question of the ties between ready-to-wear and haute couture. She founded the design and research studio Clinique Vestimentaire in her quest to use her work to substantially redefine ideas about the body and clothes.
In March 2022, the gallery will be holding an exhibition dedicated to her work in its Brussels space. The show will feature around ten brand new creations from the artist, taking viewers on a voyage of discovery into her visionary world.
