Gaëlle Boucand is a french interdiscipinary artist who works mainly in visual arts and cinema contexts since 2010. Born in Paris, she graduated from Paris Beaux-Arts. She also studied at the Cooper Union in NY, and was a resident of Pavillon-Palais de Tokyo in 2007. Right after she moved to Berlin where she developed a multimedia work and participated in different collaborations implicated in the Berlin city life: arm&sexy, a monthly movable party gathering two emblematic and opposite sides of the berliner culture, Spre-chkontakt mit Müggelturm, an in situ project dealing with the story of two historical towers at the edge of Berlin, and InsBlickfeld gerückt, a curatorial program based on a collection of a hundred artist archives, presented in the French Institute. In 2010, she finished her first feature length documentary movie Gone to Croatan that deals with the berliner electronic music underground world. Her second documentary JJA was shown in several cinemas, museums and festivals, like Hors Pistes/Centre Georges Pompidou, Kasseler Videofest, Rencontres Internationales or FIDMarseille, and it won three prizes. Her visual work was exhibited internationally, notably in Paris at Musée d’Art Moderne, Palais de Tokyo, Kadist Foundation, and in Berlin at Bethanien and xavielaboulbenne.
