Camille Pradon is investigating on body and gesture, language, the underlining of stories and narrative structures. Her art practice is influenced by literature, painting, photography and motion pictures.

She uses film (digital and analog), installation (including pictures, films, sounds), photography and prints to explore the narrative potential of pictures, their dialectic and the way they interact with their surroundings. Image transformations and modifications, using filters, aggrandizements and framing techniques, is a trademark of her work.

 


In 2020 she joins the prestigious Cité internationale des arts in Paris with the support of Carasso's Foundation, the same year her 'Metaphora' project wins the Villa Salammbô's grant and art residency with French Cultural Institute of Tunisia. In 2021 Camille Pradon is a successful candidate at the 2.12 programme of Cité internationale des arts and her project 'La Cacciata' wins the Grand Tour Program by French Cultural Institute Italia.
