Mickael Doucet was born in Blois (France) in 1974 and he currently lives and works in Paris.

Through stretches of architectural rigor, he creates contemporary spaces that seem abandoned by their inhabitants and in whose privacy we invade. Mickael Doucet leaves traces of a presence that has evaporated and he uses to represent contemporary elements as house and objects with references to antiquity.

This “utopian elsewhere”, as defined by Doucet, is offered to our eyes, but if we look carefully it is less inaccessible from what it seems. In fact, sometimes it is simply our home, where we have retired far from conflict, to think and meditate, with the help of art and culture.

Curator Marion Guggenheim describes Doucet’s work as “something luxurious. But the luxury of being alone in free spaces, something rare in our urban reality.”

He currently works with
CRAG Gallery, Torino. Italy
Galerie Charron, Paris
L’ime art gallery, France / South Korea
Marion Guggenheim, Paris / Lisbon
