Born in Nice in 1961, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot puts music at the heart of his work. From 1985 to 1994, he composed for writer and theatre director Pascal Rambert’s Side One Posthume Théâtre company.
His drive to give his work shape and form led him to create installations. After studying exhibition space architecture, this innovative artist started dreaming up systems to generate a remarkable listening experience.
For many years, Céleste has travelled the world to exhibit his work. He was the first French artist to win the New York International Studio Program (P.S. 1) prize for 1998 to 1999. In 2015, he represented France at the 56th Venice Biennale.
