1990 Paris, France

After preparatory training with artist Annette Huster, Anne-Flore Cabanis followed the workshops of artists Bernard Piffaretti, Sylvie Fanchon, Dominique Figarella (P2F workshop) and Philippe Cognée at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris, from which she left graduated in 2007.

Since 2001, she has drawn a random path in pen on paper. This writing obeys simple rules: a freehand drawn line that does not cross and whose angles are always right angles. The result is organic and suspends attention in an introspective flutter. After the experience of a study trip to Brazil in 2005, she translated this language into space by making it take different forms: performances, sound pieces, in situ collages with adhesive tape and installations in volume of tense lines.

Anne-Flore Cabanis' in situ interventions play with the architecture of private or public places. By breaking a visual silence, they reveal the presence of selected invisible movements. The artist creates appearances and disappearances of lines and colors which open a reading, give a direction, offer a moment of reflection on the circulation of bodies, of gaze or thought. She made her first in situ collage with adhesive tape during an exhibition in Terminal 5 at JFK Airport in New York in 2004.

Her projects recently led her to work at CENTQUATRE-PARIS, in the Ixelles district of Brussels in Belgium, in a college in Aubervilliers (93), at Metz train station, at La Filature (Mulhouse national stage) and abroad in the city of Taipei, Taiwan.

Anne-Flore Cabanis lives and works in Paris.
