Guillaume Martial is a French artist, video maker and photographer born in 1985 in Normandy. After ten years of intensive figure skating, he studied film and animated image. In the burlesque cinema tradition, his work raises the question of the place of the man in the space with quite a playing and dérision. In 2015, he was the prize-winner of the prestigious HSBC award for photography. His work is regularly exhibited in galleries, festivals and international institutions. He pursues his personal researches during artist residencies, accepts private and public commissions and teaches with several publics. Guillaume Martial is represented in France and Swiss by the gallery Esther Woerdehoff.
