Astrée Duval est une artiste transfem blanche qui navigue entre Berlin, Bruxelles et Paris. Prolifique et pluriel, son travail se déploie dans les domaines de la littérature, la philosophie et la théorie critique, l’art vidéo et numérique, la performance et l’installation, la peinture et la calligraphie, l’animation d’ateliers, la photographie, le design graphique et web.

Things I'm currently busy with:

*****

Astrée is preparing her first exhibition✨ for a sneak peak, here is a video of a presentation I made in March 24.

The Purple Temple

My philosophical treatise on dissociation and queer clubbing as a tribal healing practice, an attempted bible for the 21st century gay revolution.

TRASHQUEEN

A dustanesque trans memoir on sex, drugs and socialism. It's delirious. It's messy. It's raw. Hopefully this will become my first book in french. You can preview the text here. Don't hesitate to leave comments❤️

Works available for booking:

WORKSHOP

La Queer Life - Domesticity, Kinship, Utopia

How can we emancipate from the monolithic model of the nuclear family and the heteronormativity engraved in our social and architectural landscapes? Inspired by anti-patriarchal and gender-fuck approaches to home-making, this workshop will lead us into a collective exploration of what queerness produces on our domestic impulses. Through discussion, drawing and movement, we will develop our narratives of connection and shape the outlines of our feminist queer utopias.

Casual Trouble - What About Institutional Queerness?

How to deploy a queer anti-capitalist discourse in spaces that are complicit in the reproduction of the power structures we denounce? What is our political agency as people whose subsistence depends on compromised institutions? How to be a pragmatic agent of change while living as an artist in a capitalist country? Is it possible to navigate the lack of integrity and ethics in the contemporary art world? Together, we will discuss strategies and tactics to navigate these unsavory situations. Keywords: privilege, cronyism, tokenism, complacency, performativity

·. ✧ BIOGRAPHY ✧.·

Astrée Duval is dancefloor mystique, cosmic healer and socialist agitator. Tranny Robin Hood on acid, priestess of the purple temple. A badly shaved punk goddess living on clouds.

She works as a visual artist and produces avant-garde literature, dissociated poetry and fun social critique. The hottest witch in town. She’s totally out of control!
