Lyes Hammadouche was born in Algeria in 1987. He came to France in 1993 and graduated from École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs Paris in 2013. Throughout his works he creates a cycle, maintains a rhythm, includes a space and tries to perceive its details. He is looking for the limit between immobility and movement. His creations are vectors aiming to stretch our punctual and fleeting awareness of time. When all the attention is focused on every passing second, when the mind enters in an almost meditative state, close to emptiness, only then we can fully experience time. Today he is a PhD student in the PSL-SACRe school, affiliated to École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. The artist Samuel Bianchini and the researcher Jerôme Sackur are the co-directors of his thesis.
