Bio & Concept
Born in 1980 in Strasbourg, France, Elyse lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. After her education
in applied arts in Strasbourg, she studied fine arts in Besançon, France, which she completed with
the diploma DNSEP (level Master) in 2004. To extend her practical skills, she entered in the Atelier
de Couture (tailoring studio) of Caroline in Ixelles, Belgium. During her studies, the artist
frequented internships and artist residences. In particular, she made work placements at the
Nouveau Théâtre in Besançon and the Opéra la Monnaie in Brussels, where she still occasionally
assists in the making of decors and costumes.
These activities were guiding for Elyse’s artistic practice. Often, her installations evoke stage
designs, where fabric plays an important role. Concurrently, she works as scenographer and
costume designer for several theatres like the Théâtre de la Guimbarde, Charleroi, Belgium and the
Lily & Compagnie, Tournai, Belgium. Her experience in tailoring are a good base for these tasks.
Since 2006 arises a passion for embroidery, which is reflected in her creative outcome. Thereby,
the thread is increasingly replaced by natural hair, like in our artwork of the month of March 2018.
Beyond that, Elyse processes natural hair and resembling materials in sculptural installations, like
the series “de corps et d’esprit” and “de l’intime”. For monumental installations like “orphélia” or
“macrale” she uses brass wire. Going along with the integration of hair, is an interest in the female
history and the women’s place in society. An expression for this research, are the works in the
artist’s first solo exhibition "Apolline, Constance et les autres..." (Spazio Testoni, Bologna, 25
November 2017 – 13 January 2018). There was the embroidery of the title giving series, the display
portraits in natural hair (de corps et d’esprit), a brass wire installation and one room dedicated to
female handiwork (ouvrage de dames). Like for the canvas hair embroidery, Elyse stitched texts
from ancient manuals for female manners. Nevertheless, this time the dimensions are limited to
handkerchiefs and the stitching is by “normal” threads.
Due to her experience of different cultural influences, the sources of the texts are in several
European languages. Grown up in the Alsace, a French frontier region with Germanic influences,
the artist lives since eight years in Brussels. Besides the three official Belgian languages (French,
Flemish and German) English is also present, as the city is seat of the European Parliament.
Additionally, Elyse introduced Italian into her works, since this is the language of the exhibition
hosting country.
She participated with her sculptural oeuvre and installations in many group shows, mainly in
France and in Belgium. Also, she created decors for festivals. Besides her activity as scenographer
and costume designer, she gives workshops in embroidery (currently ACT, Brussels, but soon in
her own atelier) and intervenes in schools (Mus-e asbl, Bruxelles). At the moment, Elyse prepares
her next solo exhibition at the gallery C2 Contemporanea 2 in Florence, Italy, which will open at 12
April 2018.

Elyse Galiano nata nel 1980 a Schiltigheim in Francia, vive e lavora a Bruxelles dal 2009.

Realizzare studi artistici e trasmetterli era una naturale ovvietà per Elyse provenendo da una famiglia di disegnatori e insegnanti.

Mentre studiava Arti applicate a Strasburgo (Francia), Elyse ha acquisito metodi di ricerca e analisi. Quindi poi gli studi presso le Beaux Arts di Besançon (Fr) le hanno permesso di sperimentare la sua pratica di imaging, installazione, in cui il tessuto assume una parte importante. A questo si aggiunge la tecnica del ricamo che enfatizza il suo lavoro in una messa in scena di parole tra memoria e storia.
Accanto al suo ricamo presentato ad Art Truc Troc (Be), Art'mazone (Be), il centro culturale Marchin (Be) e ASCAP Montbéliard (Fr); installazioni di Elyse sono state esposte durante la Nuit Blanche di Bruxelles (Be), nel corso del Hélécine Sentes (Be), e al premio "Dauphine" alla scuola Dauphine di
Parigi (Fr), tra gli altri ...
Elyse ha anche lavorato alla produzione di set al Royal Theatre di La Monnaie di Bruxelles (Be) e allo spettacolo "Sweet & Swing" al Guimbarde Theater di Charleroi (Be). È anche scenografa per Lily & Compagnie.
Elyse gestisce anche laboratori di ricamo per ACT Studio ed è anche impegnata in scuole di arti visive per Mus-e Belgio.
