Born in 1987 in Paris (FR) where she lives and works.

Clémence de Montgolfier collaborates as The Big Conversation Space (TBCS) since 2010 with American artist Niki Korth (born in 1987, lives and works in San Francisco). Together and apart, they interrogate the circulation of discourse within the frame of its contemporary technologies of production and reproduction, and its uncertain future. They create events, conversations, performances, publications, games, documents and video broadcasts or media platforms that seek to create and question relations between individuals, artists and audiences alike, in an interactional understanding of the artwork. At the intersection of mediation, art and media, their work generates situations of conversation, real or imagined, through communication devices that they interpretate or design. They aim to find the space between the self and the other, and to propose modes of cohabitation and understanding, in the context of the political and technical history of the media which we have inherited.

Clémence de Montgolfier is graduated from the School of Fine Arts of Angers in 2011, and recently completed her PhD program in information and communication sciences in the Sorbonne-Nouvelle University in Paris. She is co-founder of the storefront artspace Indice 50 in Paris with Hugo Brégeau. Niki Korth and her have participated in a number of exhibitions in France and abroad, such as recently at CAC Brétigny, Brétigny-sur-Orges, France ; Villa du Parc, Annemasse, France ; 8, Rue Saint-Bon, Paris, France ; Nouveau Festival Centre Pompidou, Paris, France ; Human Ressources, Los Angeles, United-States. Since 2015, they have been invited by (Anna Hess & Sacha Béraud) to realize the online video broadcasting project BCC Channel in collaboration with Alexander Rhobs.
