Jacques Julien was born in 1967 in Lons-le-Saunier and lives and works between Montdidier (France) and Paris, where he teaches at the École nationale supérieure d'architecture. Julien chose to practice fine art by chance; he might just as well have chosen to be a punk musician (He really did form the group SPLITt with the artists Dominique Figarella and Hugues Reip). He quickly gave up painting and started to work in video and sculpture. His assemblies are put together with objects and ideas from the world of sport (basketball hoops, pitches, ping-pong tables?) and amusingly play with scale, colours and shapes inherited from modernism. The Sète CRAC exhibited his work in 2014 and he held exhibitions at the Domaine de Chamarande in 2011 and the Chapelle du Genêteil in 2012. His warks feature in the collections of the Languedoc-Roussillon, Franche-Comté and PACA FRACs.
