Les Canailles

Les Canailles is an artistic duo formed in 2015 by Diane Marissal and Jérémie Leblanc-Barbedienne. Both of them have literary and artistic influences that mix with their visual culture. During her studies at ENSAPC, Diane developed theoretical and plastic research around encounters as a generator of forms. Jérémie, on the other hand, acquired a strong iconographic culture at ESAG Penninghen.

They have been rewarded for their work and have collaborated with various institutions.

Les Canailles' work revolves around the art of paper cutting and collage. They use a reduced colour palette to create abstract yet narrative images, inviting the viewer into a world that's sensitive to the movements of the world. Their work involves personal stories and collective realities, with each project inspired by a specific region they've encountered. Through their modular devices, they create dynamic images that can be manipulated, assembled, and moved, all while telling true stories and wordplay. The titles act as keys to guide the viewer through the seemingly abstract images, which are actually full of storytelling. The result is a poetic exploration of narrative imagery that brings together free association, writing, and collaboration.
