b. 1983

Amélie Ducommun is a French-Swiss artist born in 1983. An honours graduate of Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris (ENSAD) and the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, at 36, Ducommun has been celebrated with over 100 group and solo exhibitions all over the world, including France, Spain, USA, China, Italy, Switzerland, UAE, Germany, Brazil, Portugal, and Canada. She has also participated in several art fairs, including Art Miami, FIAC, Art Central Hong Kong, Art Elysée, Art Madrid, Art Stage Jakarta, and Estampa, along with the Beijing International Art Biennale and the Biennale de Dakar.

In 2009 the artist won the Académie des beaux-arts residency and spent two years at the Casa de Velázquez in Spain, representing French painting. During this time, she participated in several group and solo exhibitions and travelled across the country, studying the landscape to create two important series, "Paysages en movement" and "Paysages furtivos."

In 2011, the artist was invited by the Miró Foundation in Majorca to produce works in Miró's summer studio that interact with the island's landscape. She worked for four months, studying Majorca's rivers and streams, and two of her works were acquired and exhibited by the Foundation, "El Rio Negro" and "El Rio Rojo." That same year, Ducommun won the Georges Wildenstein Prize.

In 2013, Ducommun was selected to represent France in the 9th edition of the Francophonie in Nice where she won the silver medal. In 2014 she was invited to celebrate 50 years of diplomatic relations between France and China through exhibitions in Beijing, Shanghai, and more.

Captivated by nature and notions of memory, Ducommun has travelled the globe exhibiting her work and is constantly questioning perceptions of landscape and the interrelation between natural elements, movement and memory. "I create memory cards of places crossed, nebulae of memories," she says. "I find that the principle of memory collapses, hence this need not to forget through my work."
