Founded in 2014, Live Wild is a collective formed by seven artists from different backgrounds: Charlotte Fos, Anna Hahoutoff, Marguerite Horay, Lucie Khahoutian, Lila Khosrovian, Camille Lévêque, and Ina Lounguine. Live Wild embraces a wide range of influences, including Dadaism, Soviet propaganda, folk art and post-Internet aesthetics. Multidisciplinary and defying categorization, the collective’s practice incorporates various forms of expression like collage, photography, GIF, and video.
Live Wild’s approach is rooted in ideas of memory and identity, highlighting the multicultural origins and the nonlinear path of the individuals composing the group. Following exquisite corpse logic, their production questions the artist’s role and the veracity of images in a humorous manner. Their works thus combine strategies initiated by avant-garde movements with a distinctively contemporary visual language.
