Born in 1985, Aurore Vullierme studied, amongst others, silkscreen printing, set designing, photography and video at the National Superior School of Applied Arts in Paris. In 2009 she started to use art video and sound design to begin her research studies around the notions of roots, origins, visible and invisible. She completed her final Master’s thesis with Highest Honours in 2013. In 2014, whilst continuing to produce art videos, she worked with internationally acclaimed theatre and film director Luc Bondy, at the National Theatre of Odéon in Paris. She created for him the set designs of his last film, False Confessions, starring world famous actress Isabelle Huppert.
