Chloe Saï Breil-Dupont (b. 1990, Paris) studied painting at Beaux-Arts of Biarritz and Annecy, graduating in 2015. Shortly after, she moved to São Paolo where she studied Philosophy at PUC University São Paolo. Breil-Dupont went on to complete three residencies at les Ateliers Wonder, Dune Pondicherry, and la Villa Belleville. In 2017, she created and self-published “Le Livre O” with Vincent Chéry, a graphic novel that evokes parallel universes and worlds that exist on top of each other. The text was distributed by le Centre Pompidou and le Palais de Tokyo, amongst other institutions. From 2018 to 2020, Breil-Dupont lived in Carrara, Italy where she focused deeply on her oil painting practice. In 2021, she was selected as one of three recipients of the Jean-François Prat prize. Recent exhibitions include: All Doors Opened, Nicodim, Los Angeles (2024, solo, forthcoming); Our Tongues Have the Taste of Powder, Nicodim Upstairs, Los Angeles (2023, solo); I NEVER BROKE UP WITH YOU, Newchild Gallery, Antwerp (2022, solo); The Unknown Beginning of a Very Long Story, Galeria Nicodim, Bucharest (2022, solo); We Paint!, Palais des Études des Beaux-Arts, Paris (2022); YOU ME ME YOU curated by Rachel Keller, Nicodim, Los Angeles (2022); Angels on Horseback, Lobe Block, Berlin (2022); DISEMBODIED curated by Ben Lee Ritchie Handler, Galleria Nicodim, Bucharest (2022); Twist & Shout, Shebam Gallery, Leipzig (2022); Misa, Van-Ham Kunsthalle, Cologne (2021); Home Alone 2, Surface Area, Miami (2021); FLESH, Newchild Gallery, Antwerp (2021), and KYST, Galerie JEP, Carrara (2020), among others. Breil-Dupont currently lives and works between Berlin and Sàigòn. - Emily Ferguson’s (B. 1998, California) It Girl. is one part loose meditation on the female experience, as described in the artist’s own visual language, and another an exploration of paint, aesthetics and style. These new works oscillate between implied narrative and pure innervation, shifting seamlessly between the spoken and the felt, an exploration of how one might establish a visual relationship to an emotional sensation.
