Kévin Bray (Corbie, FR, 1989) is a French artist generalist, graduated from Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam and Alumni of the Rijks Akademie. Currently based in Amsterdam, his practice focuses on breaking and combining narratives and techniques of our past and present in the aim of debunking realities of our fictions.
Playing with the porosity of diverse Media; re-organizing mediums and tools to shape a language that would be welcoming to all of them, the work of Kevin Bray engages with different types of communication strategies. Traversing from cinema, graphic design, illustration, painting, sculpture to music and writing, in his work Bray blends and conceptualizes all of the parameters of these expressions to build up symbolic narratives, commenting on our diverse existences and the appearances they embody.
Kévin Bray’s solo exhibitions include The Transformation of Matter Creates Light, Trauma Bar und Kino, Berlin, 2022; Wills, Wheels, Wells, Future Gallery, Berlin, 2021; Breakdown After Before, Dordrecht Museum, Dordrecht, The Netherlands, 2021; Don’t forgive/get, them, Stigter Van Doesberg, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 2020; and Morpher III, Foam Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 2020. His work was also shown in group exhibitions, such as L’anima Navigue, Future, Ancien, Fugitif, Palais De Tokyo, Paris, France, 2019 and RijksOpen, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 2018.
