Justine Emard is an artist who explores the new relationships between our lives and technology. By associating the different mediums of the image—from photography to video and virtual reality—she situates her work at the crossroads between robotics, objects, organic life and artificial intelligence. Her devices take as their starting point experiences of deep learning and dialogue between man and machine. Since 2016, she has been collaborating with scientific laboratories in Japan. For the creation of her films and video installations Reborn and Co(AI)xistence, she works with Mirai Moriyama, actor and dancer, and Alter, a humanoid robot developed by professors Takashi Ikegami and Hiroshi Ishiguro. Since 2011, she shows her work in solo exhibitions in France, South Korea, Japan, Colombia, Sweden and Italy.
She has also participated in group exhibitions at the Moscow International Biennial of Contemporary Art, the NRW Forum (Düsseldorf), the National Museum of Singapore, the Cité des Arts (Reunion Island), the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Itaú Cultural Institute (São Paulo), the Cinémathèque Québécoise (Montreal), the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), the Barbican Center (London) and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin).
