Place of Residency
Salomé Ingelbrecht lives and works in Rennes, France. During her studies at the European School of Fine Arts
of Brittany, she developed a Visual Poetry, a practice where poetry, installation and print meet. Her poetic
explorations have recently led her to exhibit at the Blast collective in Angers and the Pollywog Studio in Sens.
She is a member of B612 Rennes, a group of artists who offers workplaces, shared technical workshops, a
programme of exhibitions and residencies for artists and researchers to promote contemporary creation.
poetry, installation, print
Salomé Ingelbrecht is a visual poet who seeks out the poetic potential of things in an amusing way: the
surprising, the unusual in the ordinary with a deliberate economy of means. Most of the time, she moves back
and forth between flat surfaces and volumes. She plays with these interstices to create works that lie somewhere in between exhibitable editions and sculptures of words. She manipulates materials, colors, found objects and writing as a source of poetic opportunities.
Year of participation
During my residency I want to work on my poetry in a language other than French and explore a new facet of
my practice. My process involving a lot of sampling and wandering, I'll be going back and forth between words,
languages and points of view through writing, collecting and installations. This cross-border project will give me
the opportunity to go on a search for words in the places I visit, meet artists and local people and immersing
myself in the cities through poetic interventions.
