Ludivine Allegue is a primarily a painter. Her work questions the nature and constitution of both individuality and conscience, through her approach of intimate and collective memory.

Her PhD thesis gave her the opportunity to research perception through the first video art she made inside Jaume Plensa’s sculptures (A propos de Chaos-Saliva, 2001), and to subsequently work with the sculptor during several years.

In 2005 she collaborated with Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam, and initiated her experimentations with the capture of movement from the performers’ body in short film Sama (2006), an experience she wrote about in co-edited book Practice-as-Research: In Performance and Screen, (2009, Palgrave Macmillan).

She deepened that approach with vocal artist Yvon Bonenfant (UK, Canada) within painting-voice-video art installation B(earth) (2007-08), video arts Intimacies and Beacons (2008), and in several writings (respectively published by Intellect [UK], Publications de la Sorbonne [FR]) in which she addresses her creative process but also the legal issues of interdisciplinary collaborations.

During her residence at the Museo CAV La Neomudéjar in 2015-16, she developed her long term project on untold family and historical memories Le Maschere Nude and co-authored and realized interdisciplinary “Disorient” with performance artist Valentina Lacmanovic.

PhD in Arts from the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, she was also an associated artist and researcher at the Esthétique de la performance et des arts du spectacle group, Institut A.C.T.E. – UMR 8218 (CNRS, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and a research associate of the PARIP project, Practice as research in performance ( at the University of Bristol (UK): her work with British Choreographer Rosemary Lee the Suchness of Heni and Eddie has been released on DVD by ResCen and PARIP (
