Agnès Biro is a freelance curator based in Paris. She graduated with a master's degree in Curating Art from Stockholm University (SE) and recently worked in the exhibitions team at Frac Grand Large in Dunkirk where she managed all off-site exhibitions and artist residencies. Originally from France, Agnès previously followed a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins (UK) where she gained interest in challenging the relation between audiences and time.
Agnès acquired diverse experiences internationally including working for the State Hermitage Museum (Saint Petersburg), The Other Art Fair (London), Gallery Antonine Catzéflis (Paris), the Art Center Ygrec-ENSAPC (Aubervilliers) and more recently assisting the curatorial team of the 2021 Bruges Triennial.
Her curatorial practice explores "interruption" as a way to influence the viewer’s experience. With interests in architecture, animation and miniatures, she is looking at ways of manipulating spaces that change people’s natural rhythm and flow and help punctuate their sense of reality. For Agnès Biro, Art carries a universal language through emotions that enables the viewers to interrupt the time far away from fabricated concepts and think about how it really feels to be alive.
Looking at investing spaces outside the traditional institution, Agnès' most recent project La Dérive (2022) consists in a mysterious invitation sent for an evening art walk in a secret location in Bruges after sunset. Another project A moment in time (2021) involved 20 artworks from internationally renowned contemporary artists in the (1856) neoclassical house of Flemish poet Christine D'haen. Previous shows included Overflow (2020), a pop-up exhibition staring three art graduates from Konstfack University in a student corridor room and Interruption (2021) a one day only art experience involving four artists in the frozen landscape of the Swedish woods.
