Françoise Pétrovitch is an art professor at ESAIG Estienne in Paris. Her work engages with different areas of artistic creation, including drawing, painting, sculpture, printing, and more. Her passion for art emerged at the early age of six, when she already expressed her wish to become an artist who draws.
In 2015, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington, D.C., selected Pétrovitch to participate in the ‘Women to Watch’ biennial contemporary art exhibition.
Pétrovitch has chosen to experience the artistic adventure of the Drawing Hotel through her work ‘Behind Eyelids’ (Derrière les paupières). She considers a night in a hotel as a night of its own that one spends in an in-between state in a different place, similar to intermittent fragments. Petrovitch has thus created a sequential cinema session along the corridor, which induces an open-eyed experience of drowsiness.
