lives and works in Lille (FR)
"Each work of Fabien Zocco is the resolution of an equation posed by him whose
terms are technè, artifice, simulacrum, automatism, exhaustion...
Whether plastic, visual or multimedia, the work given as a solution seems
often stem from the autonomization of a system. The forms thus coldly generated
play on the assumed distancing of the artist and place the spectator in a solitary state of
heightened perception of his own humanity.
His work has been shown in France (NEMO Biennale, Le 104-Paris, Le Fresnoy, FRAC Poitou-
Charentes,... ), in Germany (ZKM Karlsruhe, GEH8 Dresde), in Russia (MAM Moscou), in Ukraine
(Dovzhenko Center Kyiv, Tetramatyka Lviv), in China (Pearl Art Museum Shanghai), in Mexico
(French Institute Mexico city), in Canada (UQTR Trois-Rivières), in Poland (Wroclaw), in Belgium
(NTAA Biennale Ghent, Musée Royal de Mariemont Morlanwelz), in Italy (Spazio IN SITU Rome,
LALD Polignano a Mare) and online (The Wrong – New digital art biennale).
Fabien Zocco graduated Le Fresnoy-Studio national des arts contemporains (2016, jury honors).
He is associate artist with La Malterie (Lille, FR).
