Chabannes graduated in 1999 from Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs (ENSAD) in Paris.
Chabannes explores the notion of identity, its various derivations and representations within philosophy, psychology and biometry. Her proteiform body of work lies on a contrasted dialog between the ever-changing psychological identity and the rigid boundaries of physical identification. Chabannes opposes the State’s monopoly over the right to define identity against the extreme complexity of defining ourselves as individuals. In her recent projects, Chabannes brought the psychological exploration of the individual into an in dissociable relation with Archeological Procedures. Her installations stand as sites, her sculptures are submitted to raw and meticulous excavations which debris and features are remains and evidence of our particularity.
Amelie Chabannes was born in Paris, France. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
Her work has been shown in Carrousel du Louvre (Paris), Museo Frantz Mayer Mexico City, Cite de la Musique (Paris), Galerie SE (Norway) Galerie Acte 2, Galerie Anton Weller (Paris) and LUXE Gallery (New York), Galerie Hussenot (Paris).
