Low-tech in her approach, Agathe Snow creates assemblages of simple items, found objects and detritus. She transforms these materials with paint, plaster and fiberglass into spontaneous totems that serve as monuments to both optimism and moral decay. Snow’s work embodies the redemptive power of human ingenuity in its rescue of decrepit and common materials, suggesting a cause for celebration through their recharacterization.
Agathe Snow was born in 1976 in Corsica, France.
Exhibitions of Snow’s work have taken place at: the Brant Foundation in Greenwich, Connecticut; the New Museum in New York City; the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City; the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin, Germany; Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume in Paris, France; Palaisde Tokyo in Paris, France; and Saatchi Gallery in London, UK.
Snow’s work is included in the permanent collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City; the Charles Saatchi Collection in London, UK; the Zabludowicz Collection in London, UK; and the Dikeou Collection in Denver, Colorado.
Snow currently lives and works in Long Island, NY.
