Justine Emard
 (b. 1987) is a French visual artist. She lives and works in Paris.

Her work explores the new relationships that are being established between our lives and technology. By combining different image medias – from photography to video and virtual reality – she situates her work at the crossroads between robotics, objects, live 3D prints, organic life and artificial intelligence.

Since 2011, she had solo shows in France, South Korea, Japan, Colombia, Sweden and Italy.

She also participated in group shows at the Moscow Biennale of contemporary art, the NRW Forum (Dusseldorf), the National Museum of Singapore, the Cité des Arts (La Réunion island), the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the institute Itaú Cultural (São Paulo), the Cinémathèque Québécoise (Montréal), the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), the Barbican Center (London) and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin).

Justine Emard 
(née en 1987), artiste, explore les nouvelles relations qui s’instaurent entre nos existences et la technologie.
En associant les différents médiums de l’image – de la photographie à la vidéo et la réalité virtuelle -, elle situe son travail au croisement entre la robotique, les objets, la vie organique et l’intelligence artificielle. Ses dispositifs prennent pour point de départ des expériences de Deep-Learning (apprentissage profond) et de dialogue entre l’homme et la machine. Depuis 2016, elle collabore avec des laboratoires scientifiques au Japon. Pour la création de ses films et installations vidéo Reborn et Co(AI)xistence, elle travaille avec Mirai Moriyama, acteur et danseur, ainsi que Alter, un robot humanoïde développé par les professeurs Takashi Ikegami et Hiroshi Ishiguro.

Depuis 2011, elle montre son travail lors d’expositions personnelles en France, Corée du Sud, Japon, Colombie, Suède et Italie.

Elle a participe également à des expositions collectives: la Biennale internationale d’Art Contemporain de Moscou, le NRW Forum (Düsseldorf), le National Museum of Singapore, la Cité des Arts (La Réunion), le Moscow Museum of Modern Art, l’institut Itaú Cultural (São Paulo), la Cinémathèque Québécoise (Montréal), le Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), le Barbican Center (Londres) et le Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin).
