Born in 1979. Lives and works in Avignon

Through drawing, Anne Goyer's work explores our relationship to perception, memory and light in a transdisciplinary approach. She develops a polymorphic work aimed at revealing “the sensitive”. The human face becomes a meeting place, a poetic interface, a search for sensitive appearance. Over the course of these plastic experiments, mixing scientific approach, intuition and technicality of the gesture, she creates a new blue. Borrowed from nature, it is structural and pigmentless, similar to that of the Earth's atmosphere. Proceeding by hand and with only black and white materials, she structures a luminous space in thin layers on a nanometric scale, thus managing to bring the light wave into the presence.

Based on bare means, a composite temporality, this process has been the subject of a patent and a Research-Creation project since 2016 with the CNRS (French National Scientific Research Center) and the physicist Anne Pillonnet of the Institut Lumière Matière de Lyon.
