Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann
Born in 1980. Lives and works in Paris, France, and in London, UK.
A graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts, Paris-Cergy in 2006, Badaut Haussmann took part in the Pavillon residency programme at Palais de Tokyo in 2011-2012 and was selected for the Villa Kujoyama research residency in Kyoto, Japan, in 2016. Badaut Haussmann is represented by Galerie Allen since 2014 and was awarded AWARE prize in 2017 (Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions). In addition to her artistic practice, she teaches at Parsons Paris – The New School since 2017. In 2021, she opened a solo show at Ellen de Bruijne PROJECTS, Amsterdam, NL, which was followed by a duo-show with Galerie Allen at LISTE in Autumn. In 2022, she did a six-weeks residency at the Secession, Vienna, AU, and will then begin her research for the project of the ‘Pavillon des Amours’, selected by the ‘Monde Nouveaux’ program of the French Ministry of Culture. In the upcoming months, she has two solo shows opening in Milan and Vienna.
Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann’s artistic works revolve around the notion of para-architecture. Her research is situated at the intersection of several fields including domesticity, psychology and feminism. Her practice is centered around the concept of design and its history as a social and political expression. She works with sculpture, installation, image, text, video, sound; the exhibition being her main medium.
Her work has been the subject of several solo and group shows, most recent include: Campoli Presti (2022, Paris, France), Ikon Gallery (2022, Birmingham, UK), Musée d’Art Moderne (2021, Paris, France), Fondation Pernod Ricard (2021, Paris, France), The Community (2021, Pantin, France), A Tale of A Tub (2021, Rotterdam, The Netherlands), Centre Pompidou (2020, Paris, France), Beeler Gallery (2020, Columbus, Ohio, USA), MACRO (2020, Rome, Italy), MRAC (2019, Sérignan, France), Musée départemental d’art contemporain de Rochechouart (2018, Rochechouart, France), Kettle’s Yard (2018, Cambridge, UK), MUSEION (2017, Bolzano, IT), MUDAM (2017, Luxembourg, LUX), Centre Pompidou (2017, Metz and Paris, FR).

"Horror in the Modernist Block"
Rob Jelinski writes, "Beth Ellen is a simple, joyful handwritten font crafted after the penmanship of my mom, Beth Ellen Jelinski who passed away from cancer on March 5th, 2017. The purpose of this typeface is to give, so it is totally free to use for personal or commercial projects under the SIL Open Font License. My single request is that you help the legacy of Beth Ellen live on by sending a short note to someone you love each time the font is used. Tell them you love them, encourage them to be their best, or send them a scripture. This is the way Beth Ellen lived her life, writing notes to share love and faith."
