UNGLEE


Nationality: French

Unglee became known in the late 70's for his experimental films that were screened in France and abroad, then in the 80's for his photographs of tulips. In the 90's, in parallel to his exhibitions, he started to intervene in art reviews such as Art Press, Art Présence, Technikart or the Revue d'Esthétique in which he published his "Disparitions" (Disappearances), fictional obituaries in which he tells his life and passion for tulips.

Between 2000 and 2005 he started shooting a series of videos around the theme of love declarations. These works were shown from France, Germany, Italy to South Africa.
In 2010, he publishes Unglee-Puzzle, a monograph presenting his life and work.

In 2012, he receives a research grant from the CNAP for his Tulipe Bleue - Immaterial Sculpture project. The fragrance, created for him by Domicile Bertier, perfumer at IFF, is first unveiled at the Rives de la Beauté event in Paris in 2014. In November of the same year, he has a solo show at Galerie Christophe Gaillard : On le croyait heureux.

In 2015 the gallery presents Unglee goes to Hollywood, a solo show at Paris Photo Los Angeles. At the same time, the installation of Tulipe Bleue - Immaterial Sculpture is realized et the gallery concept store Please Do Not Enter in downtown Los Angeles. Later on, the film festival Côté Court grants him retrospective of his films and videos.
