Jean-Marie Mauclet

Charleston artist couple Gwylene Gallimard (born 1948, Paris, France) and Jean-Marie Mauclet (born 1942, Meru, France) have worked independently and collaboratively. Their collaborative works include Olympia at 701 Center for Contemporary Art. They have developed permanent and temporary art installations with support from the Ministère de la Culture (France); the South Carolina Arts Commission; Charleston’s Spoleto Festival; and the National Endowment for the Arts. Mauclet studied at the University of Paris, France; the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he received an MFA; and New York City’s Cooper Union School of Art and Architecture. Gallimard studied at Paris’ Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs and received an MFA from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.

Statement of support:

Gwylene Gallimard and Jean-Marie Mauclet have devised an aesthetic system with powerful, democratized, socially conscious preoccupations, placing them at the cutting edge of contemporary Post-Colonial artistic praxis. Their works engage audiences on multiple levels simultaneously. Often communication and discussion between diverse communities in terms of age, gender, economic context and ethnicity form an integral component of their artistic systems. They are an example of artists whose life-long contribution offers a carefully conceived unity of diverse components of the axiological challenge, including ethical, aesthetic and value components.
