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

Her artworks explore the new relationships that are being established between our existences and technologies. 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.  In 2017, she is a winner of the residence Hors-les-murs by the Institut Français for a project in Tokyo.

Her work had been exhibited at the Moscow Biennale of contemporary art, the NRW Forum (Dusseldorf), the National Museum of Singapore, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the institute Itaú Cultural (São Paulo), the Cinémathèque Québécoise (Montréal), the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), the MOT Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin) and the Barbican Center (London).

In 2020, she will be in residence at ZKM (Karlsruhe) and she is a winner of the national photographic commission  «IMAGE 3.0» by the CNAP (National Center for Visual Arts) and the Jeu de Paume in Paris.

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’humain et la machine. Depuis 2016, elle collabore avec des laboratoires scientifiques au Japon et est lauréate de la résidence Hors-les-murs de l’Institut Français en 2017 à Tokyo.

Son travail a été exposé à la Biennale internationale d’Art Contemporain de Moscou, le NRW Forum (Düsseldorf), le National Museum of Singapore, le Moscow Museum of Modern Art, l’institut Itaú Cultural (São Paulo), la Cinémathèque Québécoise (Montréal), le Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin), le Mori Art Museum (Tokyo),  le MOT Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo  et le Barbican Center (Londres).

En 2020, elle sera  en résidence au ZKM (Karlsruhe) et elle est lauréate de la commande nationale photographique “IMAGE 3.0” du  CNAP (Centre national des arts plastiques) en partenariat avec le Jeu de Paume à Paris.
