Agathe Snow (b. Corsica, 1976) has an eclectic practice that combines a broad range of mediums including performance, installation, and sculpture to explore various ideas. After moving to New York at age 11, Snow grew up amidst the Lower East Side’s art scene of the 1980’s and 1990’s and has maintained a focus on community throughout her practice. The artist’s early performances centered around participation, famously turning dance and dinner parties into happenings. In more recent sculptures, Snow investigates the decay of ordinary materials, creating work from detritus in order to breathe new life into it. Snow has had solo exhibitions at the New Museum of Contemporary Art and Deutsche Guggenheim among other institutions and has shown in museums and galleries around the world. Snow lives and works in Mattituck, NY.
