Arthur Guilleminot (1992) is an artist with an ‘ecodeviant’ practice, living in Amsterdam. He was born in France in a family who disregards imposed norms of being and listens emphatically to the desire of other ways of living. This context stimulated him to always be critical towards the sociological ‘common sense’, proposing new personal and queered approaches. In his practice, he intersects disciplines such as design, performance, fashion, and fine arts.
Arthur’s practice is a strategy to facilitate the blossoming of different identities, unapologetic and non-normative. Addressing gender and sexuality, and playing with arousing shapes, his art calls for your hand, your body and your mind to merge into an experience.
After his art studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, his work is currently researching tools for decolonizing disgust, through “Camp” aestheticism and buffoonery. These tools can be used to explore and harvest the subtleties of disgust to make us kinder in trusting our visceral impulses, and to not be ashamed of the human condition of “being".
His work has been shown in the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Germany, Greece and Switzerland.
