L. Allegue




  • PhD in Arts and Arts Sciences from the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
  • Member of AVAM (Artistas Visuales Asociados de Madrid) #SN 000964
  • Associated artist & researcher at the Institut A.C.T.E. – University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
  • 2002-04 Collaborator of Sculptor Jaume PlensaBarcelona, Spain


Allegue’s work questions the limits of the image as she investigates the transgression of the frame across painting and moving image through her art works, research –she has a PhD in Arts from the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne– and collaborations with other artists.

Her PhD thesis gave her the opportunity to research perception through the first video art she made inside Jaume Plensa’s sculptures (A propos de Chaos-Saliva, 2001), and to subsequently work with the sculptor during several years.

In 2005 she collaborated with Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam, and initiated her experimentations with the capture of movement from the performers’ body in short film Sama (2006), an experience she wrote about in co-edited book Practice-as-Research: In Performance and Screen, (2009, Palgrave Macmillan).

She deepened that approach with vocal artist Yvon Bonenfant (UK, Canada) within painting-voice-video art installation B(earth) (2007-08), video arts Intimacies and Beacons (2008), and in several writings (respectively published by Intellect [UK], Publications de la Sorbonne [FR]) in which she addresses her creative process but also the legal issues of interdisciplinary collaborations.

Her interest in music and dance also led her to work with composer Julius Fujak (SK) and choreographer Rosemary Lee (UK).

Since 2009, she has been focussing on painting and is currently developing a long-term project on memory –Le Maschere Nude– to be exhibited at La Neomudéjar in 2017.

Her essays on Art have been published internationally (l’Harmattan, Palgrave, Intellect among other publishers).

“[…]Ludivine Allegue […] is exhibiting intense and harsh paintings […].”  “El punto de Leonardo Da Vinci“, de Ángeles Peñalver; El Ideal, 6 November 2010, Granada, Spain.

“[…] a great intensity emerges from Ludivine Allegue’s painting.” Le Parisien, 24 May 2008, Paris.

“While I was witnessing this plural work, I rediscovered ten times, a hundred times Ludivine Allegue’s painting, her mastery of spaces, colors, transparencies and forms.” Le Mague, May 2008, Paris.
