Winner of the Frac Bretagne-Art Norac Prize 2023, Céline Le Guillou presents a solo exhibition at the Institut Inclusartiz in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Céline Le Guillou’s work combines subtlety, spontaneity and intimacy in her work. Active through interaction with visitors, her work is brought to life by the materials used.

The exhibition is curated by Victor Gorgulho and Gabriela Davies, and represents not only Céline Le Guillou’s experience and research in Rio de Janeiro, but also those of her two residency colleagues, Benoît Fournier and Alma Berrow, who are also participating in the show. It brings together pieces produced by the artists Céline met during her stay at Inclusartiz, creating links and exchanges with Brazilian culture and flora.


Born in 1994, lives and works in Quimper and Courtils.
Céline Le Guillou studied at ESAAA in Annecy, then at EESAB-site in Quimper, where she graduated in 2018. Her approach is underpinned by attention to the materials she uses. She went on to perfect her clay techniques at the Institut Européen des Arts Céramiques in the Haut-Rhin region of France. She continues with several exhibition projects, including the Les Chantiers residency program at Passerelle center d’art contemporain in Brest and the Minoterie21 residency in Morbihan.


In 2020, Frac Bretagne and its patron Art Norac created the “Prix du Frac Bretagne – Art Norac” or Frac Bretagne-Art Norac Prize. The aim of this prize is to help emerging artists from the regional scene to gain international experience in order to encourage them to develop their careers outside our borders.

Each year, a partner structure in Europe or worldwide, willing to welcome an artist living and working in Brittany to produce a solo exhibition, is associated with the scheme.
