Clo’e Floirat is an art critic and artist: “artist-critic”. She began her rigorous training in New York, fleetingly leaving France to then attend the Design Academies of Reims and Eindhoven, Netherlands. This led her to Berlin, working with architects specializing in art spaces for another five years. From working – as an artistic director – with Robert Wilson as well as Rufus Wainwright in New York for several years, her interests have recently culminated in her graduation from the new master in Critical Writing in Art at the Royal College of Art, London.
Clo’e is a regular contributor to various publications, e.g., artpress, frieze, Intramuros, L’Officiel Art and the World Of Interiors.
Clo’e has become known for her signature drawings – a combination of drawing and writing with a critical orientation, into what she calls drawing Crit’writing – that cast a critical, humorous and refreshing look on the world of contemporary art.
“The drawing is not an end but an intermediary to urge for more thoughts and opinions, to foster our individual ‘esprit critique’.”
