Lucile Desamory is interested in the frontiers of perception, in the „too much“, the falsified – in the spurned narratives. This interest in marginal phenomena always requires to change the medium. She uses painting, drawing, embroidery, collage, photography, film, and her voice. She combines these techniques into larger webs such as installations, films, radio plays and live performances like for instance in the installation “Wild Inconsistency”, Beaufort Triennale 2015, the film ABRACADABRA 2013 Tate Modern and Anthology Film Archive NYC, in the radio plays and the performance Asteroseismology 2018 with Sabine Ercklentz and Margareth Kammerer. Many projects are created as collaborations. She has just finished her second feature film “Télé Réalité” a collaboration with two filmmakers from DR Congo, Glodie Mubikay and Gustave Fundi, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival.
Lucile Desamory lives and works in Berlin.
