Encompassing sculpture, installation and performance, Jimmy Beauquesne’s practice centers on a reconsideration of the limits of drawing in the post-Internet era. The artist employs the medium of drawing as a nostalgic, melancholic and also recuperative act. Often borrowing figures from celebrity culture, Beauquesne’s images re-contextualize their subjects within a strange and fantastic landscape—while also commenting on the mechanism of the screen.

Group exhibitions that have shown Beauquesne’s work have taken place at: the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France (2019); 22.48m2 in Paris, France (2021); Fragment Gallery in Moscow, Russia (2020); the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Saint-Etienne, France (2020); Magasins généraux in Pantin, France (2019); and Triangle Arts in New York City (2020); among others.
