Isabelle Chemin (* 1.7.1964). Isabelle Chemin, after a scientific baccalaureate, she got her diploma at the university from Art School Bordeaux in 1986. After that, she began to travel and stayed in Berlin (1986-1988). She became member of the multimedia research group Das Synthetische Mischgewebe (art-sciences-technologies). She developed performances in unusual places, as workplaces, derelict stations, and swimming pools. The goal is to change the point of view of the spectators and to give a new dimension to the human body.
Since 2000 workshops with cognitive deficient people influence her personal technic. On the canvas she mixes mosaic and embroidery to draw societal situations.
