Biography[edit]

Work[edit]

Elsa Werth practice includes installation, sculpture, video, artist's books, and sound pieces. She has exhibited since 2013 in France, U.S., China, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland.[4]

Her work focuses on the use of common objects and gestures, systems, language, traditional and contemporary rituals. The interpretation of information and commodity production, their relations to the social circles, are the key approaches to her projects.[5]

In 2014 she has curated with Muriel Leray inside a storage unit in Paris Plus une pièce. Since 2016 she curates Potential Visual Evocations,[6] an ongoing outdoor traveling exhibition that took place in Paris, Clichy, Shanghai, Montreal, La Louvière and Seoul.
