Mélodie Mousset is a French contemporary artist based in Zurich, Switzerland.
Involuntarily pioneer in the field of new media art, her practice includes making sculpture, film, performance and virtual Reality, as long the body can decompose, recompose or multiply.

Renown writer author of the best seller « I love Dick », Chris Kraus writes about Mousset’s work:

"I don’t think of Mousset as part of a lineage, unless it’s one of exceptionally original, anomalous artists who have the courage to pursue an idea as far as it will go. "

Her latest award-winning and ongoing « Hand Growing » VR project HanaHana will be presented in its Full Bloom version at A Maze this year as one of the nominee in the competition.

Mélodie studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Rennes, France ; Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne, Switzerland ; Royal College of Arts, London, and completed her Masters of Fine Arts at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, USA.
