Kalie Granier is an interdisciplinary California-based French artist and curator. Her artistic practice explores the natural world below the surface and the interdependence between everything. She questions the links between our underwater environments, their ecosystems, and our human bodies in the Anthropocene era in order to reveal social and ecological imbalances while imagining alternatives for a more equitable future. Her research lives at the intersection of art, biology, and activism with a focus on seaweed and relies on a close dialogue with scientists and environmentalists. Her ecological commitment is omnipresent in her creative process and her experiences through the upcycling of local natural material gleaned from the beach.
She graduated (MA) from the ESAG, Penninghen School of Visual Art in Paris. Her work exhibited in several galleries in the US and France, ProArts Gallery (Oakland California), The MAH Museum and Radius Gallery (Santa Cruz, California), 836M Gallery (San Francisco), Galerie Linz (Paris, France), and more recently at Museum Centre del Carme (Valencia, Spain), Loop Festival (Barcelona, Spain), LA NAU Cultural Center (University of Valencia, Spain), GoodPlanet Foundation (Paris) and Es Baluard Contemporary Art Museum of Palma (Spain)
She is the co-founder of Loud Spring an Ecofeminist Art Tank and Actions based in San Francisco and curated the Pulsions Festival in California in 2018.
