It is in 2001, during his Master II in Fine Arts at the Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne University, that Nicolas Julliard, creates the Pelomorphes. Textile volumes, human-sized security blankets, Pelomorphes are strange humanoids creatures, coming from a security blanket of the artist’s childhood. After some exhibitions in recent spaces (Le Garage Moderne in Bordeaux or La Citerne Gallery in Marseille in 2004), Nicolas Julliard meets Cécile Griesmar who invites him to join the artists of her Hors-sol Gallery in Paris. Pelomorphes are then shown in the first edition of the Slick Art Fair, one of the FIAC show off in 2006. In 2007, the obtaining of the creation grant from DRAC Aquitaine allows the first exhibition abroad: Product art festival in Varna, Bulgaria in 2008. The grant for the mobility from the Regional Council of Aquitaine in 2010 support a project of residence in the dance company Donko Seko in Bamako, Mali.
Pelomorphes integrates some public and private collections (The General Council of the Gironde collection in 2009 and Les Arts au mur’s collection in Pessac, 2011).
In 2010, Nicolas Julliard is invited by the curators Joanna Chevalier and Hervé Mickaëloff on the exhibition Who are you Peter? in the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton in Paris. In 2011, the curator Charlie Levine selects Pelomorphes for Transitions at the Birmingham City University, England. Recently, a residence in Lage Egal Kunstatelier in Berlin allows Nicolas Julliard to settle down partially in Germany. It is confirmed by the exhibition «Gefährliche Liebschaften""»" at the Coucou gallery in Kassel (DE), curating by Kathrin Rost. Read Less
