Christine Rebet

Christine Rebet's drawings, performances, and hand-drawn animations (shot on 16mm/35mm film) restage the optical illusions and spiritual experiments of the late 19th-century, pre-cinematic entertainment landscape, underscoring similar deceptive devices in contemporary politics and media. Rebet was raised in Lyon, France, known for the Lumière Brothers, pioneers of cinema.

She studied painting at the Venice Academy, received a BA in Scenography from the Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London, and has exhibited at Site Santa Fé, Shanghai Art Museum; Parasol Unit, London; Kamel Mennour Gallery, Paris; Taka Ishii, Tokyo and upcoming at Cartier Foundation, Paris.
