SIDONIE RONFARD

Born in Paris in 1996, Sidonie Ronfard is a photographer and visual artist who graduated from ENSAD (photo-video department).

She won the Prix de La Jeune Photographie Européenne in 2019 with her “Perte de feu” series, which features prints on transfer paper heat-pressed at 200 degrees. This was her first exhibition at the Cité des Arts in Paris.

In 2019, she will take part in the Master Photography programme at Aalto University in Finland. This led to a collaboration with the Ways of knowing collective, which in turn gave rise to two exhibitions: one in Tampere, Finland, and the other at the Neurotitan gallery in Berlin in 2022. The same year, Sidonie took part in an artistic residency on board the ship Marion Dufresne in collaboration with IFREMER. Her work was exhibited at the Villa de la Région in Saint-Denis in 2023, a first look at the convergence between art and science.

In 2023, Sidonie was a finalist for the AMMA Prize (Prix pour l’Art contemporain), an accolade combined with an exhibition at the Bastille Design Center in Paris.

Her work focuses on creating universal moods around textures, sensations and intuitions. Her work is part of a dialogue between human perception and what escapes us.

Sidonie Ronfard is the winner of Factory #14 “INCERTITUDE” in partnership with the CIMI in Toulouse.
