Jérôme Grivel

Jérôme is now in his second week as the third occursus artist in residence at Site Gallery.

Inspired by underground culture and artistic vanguard Grivel has developed a transdisciplinary practice that includes sound installation, sculpture, video and performance. As an interrogation of the extreme, his practice sails between silence and saturation, violence and quiet.

As an artist he has exhibited in group shows and festivals including Instant d’écoute, Le dojo, Nice, France (2011), 1975-2011, 6/6, Galerie Catherine Issert, Saint Paul De Vence, France (2011), City Sonic #7, Mons, Belgium (2009), 54e Salon de Montrouge, Montrouge, France (2009). As a musician he has played internationally with his band Sugar Pill and he has collaborated with several bands and musicians.

Jérôme will be leading the next reading loop (November 2nd) and, towards the end of his residency, will be screening one of the video works he has made during his time in Sheffield.
