Capucine Vever (born in 1986 in Paris, lives and works in Bobigny) develops a contextual work interested in the notion of the invisible, the unattainable and the imperceptible. Whether it is geographical, social and/or cultural, the territory is central to her artistic approach. Her practice attempts to engage with it in a poetic relationship by exploiting the narrative potential of each space. Her works proceed by collages, analogies, permanent friction between reality and fiction, scientific research and narration, cartography and legend, displacement and immobility.
Her work has been presented in various institutions, at the Museo d’Història de Catalunya (Barcelona), at the Centre d’art IMAGE/IMATGE (Orthez), at the Frac Grand Large (Dunkerque), at the Château d’Oiron (Deux-Sèvres), Nam June Paik Art Center (Seoul), La Halle des Bouchers Art Center (Vienne), Belleville Biennale (Paris), Passerelle Contemporary Art Center (Brest), Instants Chavirés (Montreuil). Her work is frequently developed during residencies such as Kër Thiossane (Dakar, 2021), Solarium Tournant (Aix-les-bains, 2020), Iconoclasses (Yvetot, 2020), Evry-Courcouronnes (2019), Semaphore of Ouessant (Finis Terrae, 2018), Eremi Arte (Italy, 2017), Maison des Arts de Malakoff (2014).
In 2021, she is a laureate of the Art and Environment Prize of the Art of Change association and of the residency on Measure Plus + of the French Institute. The same year, she is the winner of the Michel Nessim Boukris 2021 Prize of the Fondation des Artistes for the project Dunking Island. In 2019, she won the first prize of the OVNI video festival with her fim La Relève. Her works are part of the collection of the Conseil Départementale de la Seine St Denis, the FRAC Grand Large and several private collections. In 2022, she was nominated for the COAL prize.
