Arthur Poujois is an artist and curator, born in 1994 in Charleville, France. He lives and works in London. Poujois’s work develops slowly through his own individuation; finding meaning in spiritual practices and travels, where solitude leads him to confront his fears. Through rich photographic documentation, artefact collection, drawing and experimental research, he aims to develop an ecological language of images and objects that ritualise his obsession with the non-human world. Poujois graduated with honours from the Slade School of Fine art and studied philosophy at the Sorbonne University.
Poujois became a resident artist at the Lee-Alexander McQueen Sarabande Foundation in London in 2021. He was a guest speaker at the University College London Leaders conference in 2022 alongside Krzysztof Zanussi and Jan Komasa. His work has been recently featured in Worldwide FM, GRÜPPE, AnOther, NUMERO Berlin, Possession Immédiate, and X-Pages.
Since 2021, Poujois curated a series of exhibitions, as an ongoing project: Potentials (in 2022 at 122 Minories in partnership with BundedthruCancer) and Casting the Runes (in 2021 at 108 Fleet St in partnership with Harlesden High Street and Underground Flower).
Poujois has been shown in several group shows in Paris, London, New York and Hong Kong. He lives and works in London.
