Born in France in 1975; lives and works in Vietnam.
Interested in ritual transformation and the transmutation of reality, Llouquet explores archetypal imagery found in oral traditions and myths around the world. Faceless, masked or half-animal characters often populate her work. By juxtaposing recognizable elements in strange and eerie surroundings, her installations stimulate the deepest recesses of our unconscious and memory. Llouquet’s work has been exhibited internationally and in a number of biennales with Vietnam-based art collective Mogas Station. In her installation in KENPOKU ART 2016, she extends her research to the cultural aspects of the Edo Period of Japan, including yokai (monsters), misemono goya (popular fair exhibitions) and rangaku (Dutch learning).
