Léa Porré

Léa Porré is a French and Belgian artist born in 1996 and based in London. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2021 and Central Saint Martins in 2018. Her research-led practice investigates cyclical time through the interrelations of memory, history and myth, specifically deep mapping historical and sacred sites. These sites are re-imagined through 3D Worldbuilding to create Videos, Installations, Sculptures and Framed Paintings. She imagines impossible encounters as a strategy of resistance against linear time, by blending myths, dreams, and folktales to create transhistorical visions. Her physical/in-situ works take place as mnemonic installations, where her labyrinthian sets are reminiscent of video game quests, in a constant interplay of the digital and the physical planes. She has exhibited her work internationally, most recently at Pavillon Southway and MAMO Modulor in Marseille, Centre Pompidou and Brownstone Foundation in Paris, Gossamer Fog , SEAGER, Residence Gallery, COB Gallery, Paradise Row Projects, Tate Modern, and LUX in London. With upcoming shows at Andrea Festa Gallery, Rome, and Patara Gallery, Tbilisi. She was a 2022 resident of Pavillon Southway Studio in Marseille, France, and took part in Akademie Schloss Solitude and ZKM Karlsruhe web residency, ‘Ghosted’, shortlisted for the 2020 Hash Award.
