Xavier Veilhan (1963) is a French artist who lives and works in Paris.Whether he uses digital photography, sculpture, public statuary, video, installations or even the art of the exhibition, Xavier Veilhan builds his work around the same axis: the possibilities of representation. One of the most striking features of his polymorphic practice is that he treats generic objects and shapes of everyday life so that they come out smoothed, without details, and resistant to any psychological insight. Since the 1990s, bestiaries occupy a significant place in this process, and among them, penguins and rhinoceros of unnatural colours, made of painted polyester resin.

In 2009 Xavier Veilhan showed his works in the Gardens of Chateau de Versailles near Paris, France, and apartments of the Versailles Palace.“My project for Versailles mainly addresses the outdoor realm, following an east/west axis across the estate”
