Maxime Rossi


Guest of the 2021 L'Appel du Large festival

Born in 1980, Maxime Rossi is a French artist who lives and works in Paris. His work circumvents the limits of predefined genre as well as of style to draw its forms and inspiration from multiple sources: art history, ethnography or literature. Through the kaleidoscopic prism of a complex and heterogeneous practice mixing sculpture, installation, performance, scenography and video, Maxime Rossi ignores the very idea of ​​categories, and responds to his visual and sensory obsessions which also originate from much of the immediate popular culture than of the counter-cultures of the last century. His works are similar to circus acts, between technical dexterity and symbolic temptation, between magical truths and historical anecdotes.

Maxime Rossi is represented by the Tiziana Di Caro Gallery in Naples. His work has been presented at numerous exhibitions in France and internationally: at the Palais de Tokyo and the Center Pompidou in Paris, at the Regional Museum of Contemporary Art in Sérignan, at the Edouard Manet gallery in Gennevilliers, at the Halle des butchers of Vienne and at the Departmental Museum of Rochechouart. Internationally: during the 19th Sydney Biennale, at the SMAK in Gent, at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, at Kanal Pompidou Brussels, at the San Jose Museum of Art or at the Kunsthalle in Munich.


As part of the L'Appel du Large festival which will take place from July 2 to 4, 2021, a performative work by Maxime Rossi is scheduled. More information on L'Appel du Large here.
