A kind of magic: Clemence will talk about poetics and logistics mingling together to unfold projects, one after another and together, making and breaking sense.

Clemence Seilles is an artist and a designer, she produces applied and fantastic situations through objects, spaces, performances and autonomous free styling formations. Surfin between Science fiction influences, poetic gestures and busyness models, a collaborative approach is characteristic of Clemence’s protocol. She mainly sees herself as a producer and commonly calls artists, musicians and designers for their know-how and sensitivity.

Among the collaborations we find Andrea Crews, Adrien Missika, Theo demans, Joseph Marzolla, Melanie Bonajo, KruxAmsterdam, Egon Elliut and OXYDO eye-wear. Clemence has actively taken part in founding the NoisyChronics in 2006, the Dirty Art Department of Sandberg Instituut of Amsterdam since 2011, Sanks design label in 2014, the Mortal Recordings since 2015 and design studio since 2016. She moved in 2016 to Mexico city.
