Ranging from collages, collagraph prints, installations and mixed media, Fanny Allié’s practice based on the relationship of the human figure - the body - to the urban landscape is inspired by remnants, refuses, overlooked and lost elements of daily existence. Her characters, ill defined and unrestrained by their surroundings are shown in motion within uncertain landscapes. They question the presence of the body in the city and the ways of inhabiting spaces.
Fanny Allié was born in Montpellier, South of France. She graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie (The National School of Photography) in Arles, France in 2005 and moved to New York City shortly after graduating.
Princeton University, DOT Art, A.I.R Gallery, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, Fresh Window gallery, Chashama and St Eustache Church in Paris, France have organized solo exhibitions of her work. NYU/Gallatin Gallery, Freight + Volume Gallery, Field Projects, BRIC Rotunda Gallery, Dekalb Gallery/Pratt Institute and The Bronx Museum among others have featured her work in group exhibitions.
Her work has appeared in the New York Times, NY Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine, Hyperallergic, Le Monde Diplomatique, DNA Info, Marie Claire Italy and Artspace Magazine.
