Léo Caillard

Leo Caillard, an artist known for his manipulation of time, challenges our perception of temporality by blending different epochs and employing anachronism to prompt reflection on the present in relation to our past. Drawing inspiration from science and contemporary societal concerns, Caillard encourages us to reexamine our era through a historical lens, fostering a reevaluation of our future trajectory.

Born in Paris, France in 1985, Leo Caillard belongs to a new generation of artists associated with the profound changes precipitated by the advent of the digital age and the evolving societal concerns since the 2000s.

A proponent of new technologies and science, Caillard's interests lie in the exploration of time and quantum physics, transitioning from the realm of numbers to express his inquiries through art. Graduating from École des Gobelins in 2008, he continued his studies in art history while honing his photography skills and conducting research in 3D and new media.

Since 2015, Caillard has delved into new creations centered on light interacting with stone. His meticulous and scientific approach is evident in his poetic and subtle works, where conceptual creation seeks to highlight the dialogue between solid and abstract matter: tangible and intangible, corporeal and quantum.

With each passing year, Caillard's work gains greater definition, drawing parallels with contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst and his recent exhibition at the Venice Biennale, Koons and his Gazing Balls, and Olafur Eliasson with his luminous creations. When asked about his artistic movement, Caillard creatively asserts that he belongs to a new and ultra-contemporary movement, indicative of his forward-thinking approach to art.
