Edgar Sarin

Edgar Sarin was born in 1989 in Marseille. He lives and works in Paris. His work reflects a quest for political and environmental harmony, of which the individual is the catalyser. Edgar Sarin has been noticed for his work on generative ruin and for his questioning of the exhibition space. A few years ago, he established that it is a question of considering the spectator from the moment when he stops being one; thereby inscribing himself in a Mediterranean lineage of the conception of the artwork. . He defends an approach that favours learning about the world and the material – a reasoned form of the creative gesture – which he develops in a plural and precise sculptural corpus.

Edgar Sarin is also the founder of the research group La Méditerranée, with whom he organises group exhibitions in Paris. He exhibits artworks at Paris + by Art Basel with the galerie Michel Rein.

Exhibited at Private Choice in 2017 and 2018, Edgar Sarin returns for the 2022 edition with : a selection of paintings
