ABOUT THE ARTIST
Garance Vallée (b. 1993, Paris, France) was initiated into art in the studio of her father, French painter Kriki. She holds a Masters in Architecture, with a specialization in scenography, from The École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de ParisLa Villette. A pivotal introduction with Italian architect Ada Tolla in New York set her on a solo direction to formulate her own stylistic vocabulary, regardless of medium. In 2018, Milanese press secretary, Martina Gamboni invited Vallée to create an immersive installation for Milan Design Week. Titled Terra, it was this dreamlike landscape that catapulted Vallée to international recognition. Her work has been exhibited at Amelie Maison d’Art in Paris, Swing Design Gallery in Benevento, Italy, Artemate Gallery, Paris, and the Fondation Lafayette, Paris, and as installations at international design fairs. Vallée has collaborated with Maison Martin Margiela, Missoni group, Vogue Living, Nike, Estée Lauder at Le Bon Marché Paris, Astéré of ELITIS, Audemars Piguet, Atelier 27, Say Hi To, Man/Woman, among others.
