French artist Léonie Young is the host of the Biennale of Outdoor Art residency program – OUT OF STH. During the residency the artist has created, not only works which are the recordings of her impressions and experiences during her stay in Poland, but also built a contact network that will serve as the basis of further artistic-cultural exchange.
The exhibition is co-organized as part of the partnership between the BWA Wroclaw and the la malterie Association from Lille as part of the European Capital of Culture 2016 with the support of the City of Wroclaw, the City of Lille, and the French Institute under an agreement with the City of Lille.
Léonie Young is a French artist born in 1981. In 2006 she graduated from the National School of Visual Arts in Paris. Since 2011 she’s lived in Lille, where she works at the Malthouse platform that supports young artists. She presented her works in France and abroad and also participated in a number of artistic residencies in Canada (Quebec), Ireland, and Paris. In 2011, the series of photographs “Work Day – Evry” won the special prize of the Jury Prix Arte in the field of Art and the City.
La Malterie is a non-profit organisation, which runs a building, dedicated to the experimentation of arts, in the district of Wazemmes, in Lille, France.
It was created in 1995 by artists, for artists, who considered that it’s the better way to observe, find, and answer their specific needs. It is still led by a board of artists and creative people.
