Laure Catugier

Very excited to announce artist Laure Catugier was chosen for the residency in Tartu, Estonia, organised by MTÜ Eesti-Saksa Kunstikoostöö, roam project space, Berlin (roam projects e.V.) and Printing and Paper Arts Centre TYPA, which kindly accomodates and provides for the residency.

Laure Catugier (1982, Toulouse, France) lives and works in Berlin. As a visual artist with an architectural background, Catugier’s work is connected to the architectural elements of Modernism and the subsequent movements that drew inspiration from it. She explores the diversity of global post-war architecture through residencies around the world. Her research focuses on the social aspect of modernist buildings and in particular on collective housing and its progressive norms, spaces, forms and uses.

Since 2015, she has obtained several residency grants in Germany, Austria, Japan, Russia, Iran, Czech republic, Egypt, Israël, Poland, Estonia, Bolivia and Taiwan. She is the winner of the International Celeste Prize, as well as scholarships from the Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt Berlin, the Pilecki Institute Warsaw and the Stiftung Kunstfonds Bonn. Her work has been exhibited internationally (selection) : Liebling Haus – White City center (Tel Aviv), Total Museum (Seoul), In Sonora Festival (Madrid), Artum Foundation (Warsaw), Laznia Contemporary Art Museum (Gdansk), Centraltrack Gallery (Dallas, US), Galerie Weisser Elefant, German-Japanese Cultural Center and Korean Cultural Center in Berlin; Stadtmuseum and Institut Français in Düsseldorf.
