Agathe de Bailliencourt (b. 1974 Paris, France) graduated from Ecole Boulle Paris in 1998. Since then, her work has been exhibited worldwide in galleries in Paris, Tokyo, Singapore, Berlin, Yogyakarta, Hong Kong, Toronto, Mumbai, and New York amongst others.

Bailliencourt has two parallel artistic approaches - work in situ and work in the studio. In her studio, she works with canvas, paper or linen, while outdoors she works directly onto landscape, architecture and urban spaces. Embracing the limitations of working both inside and outside, patterns such as the straight line, which recur throughout her work, become focal points in the dynamics of space, time and place.

Selected public commissions and installations include: The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), New York NY (2014) and The Singapore Biennale, Singapore, SGP (2006).

Artist residencies include; Marfa Contemporary, Marfa TX (2013-2014); Art Omi in Gent, New York NY (2012); Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), New York NY (2011-2012); and Tokyo Wonder Site, Tokyo, JP (2009).

Bailliencourt has works in several public collections including a permanent installation for the French Embassy in Tokyo, Japan.

The artist lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
