Simon Boudvin

Simon Boudvin (1979, Le Mans) studied at the École des Beaux-arts de Paris in the studio of Giuseppe Penone and at the École d’architecture de Paris-Malaquais. After teaching in various art and architecture schools, he joined the École nationale supérieure de Paysage in Versailles in 2018.

His work has developed through exhibitions, collaborations and publications – his latest books are: Ailanthus altissima (B42, 2021); Bote-tchu & Sèllatte (art&fiction, 2022); Oise (Building Books, 2022) and Motivi (Roma Publications, 2022).

Every piece has developed from the exploration of a territory. One of the particularities of Boudvin’s work is his consideration of the ground.
