Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann
Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann (Born in 1980) lives and works in Paris, France, and in London, UK. She is co-represented by Galerie Allen (Paris) and Emanuela Campoli (Paris and Milan), and collaborates regularly with Ellen de Bruijne (Amsterdam).
Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann’s artistic practice revolves around the notion of para-architecture. Her research is rooted in an intersectional approach crossing feminism, psychology and domesticity. Badaut Haussmann works with sculpture, installation, image, text, video, sound ; the exhibition being her main medium, her approach being systematically contextual and situated. Drawing on specific knowledge of cinema, literature, architecture and design, she explores these disciplines as social and political expressions, injecting those references into her artistic devices. She addresses essential questions of our time in order to promote emancipation and the emergence of new forms of thought.
A graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts, Paris-Cergy in 2006, Haussmann was awarded the 2017 AWARE Prize (Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions). She took part in the Pavilion residency programme at the Palais de Tokyo in 2011-2012, and at the Villa Kujoyama’s in Kyoto, Japan, in 2016.
In 2022, Badaut Haussmann was in residence at the Secession (Vienna, AU) for her research related to the tobacco industry through the historical, iconographical and mass manipulation lenses. She recently worked on the Pavillon des Amours, a social sculpture developed to host specialist discussions on love as a political tool, the first edition of which was held in Paris in June 2023, with a second edition in Bruxelles next year. She is currently in residence with Les Magnétiques, hosted by Franklin Azzi architecture agency for her study of feminist architecture.
In parallel to her artistic practice, she taught at Paris Diderot University / Bétonsalon in 2014 and then at Parsons Paris - The New School between 2017 and 2022.
