Artist and programming engineer living in Paris, Antoine Schmitt (FR) creates installations, situations and objects, minimal and abstract, anchored in time and movement that addresses the modalities of the free being in a system of reality. In relation to the definitive and systemic contemporary world, he places programming at the core of his artworks to question the forces and shapes at stake.
His work has received numerous awards and exhibited in many international museums, institutions and festivals such as transmediale (Berlin), Vida 5.0 (Madrid), Ars Electronica (Linz), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris) and Sonar (Barcelona).
