Born in 1966 in Marseille, France. Lives and works in Paris, France.
Actions-Peu, 1993–1997 (actions-few) are anonymous and fleeting interventions carried out in public places, usually with things found on the spot.
Achour’s work is an exploration into multiplicity, symbiosis and isolation, enlisting absurdity and purposeful imprecision to create a dialogue where the viewer is invited into a world of objects echoing the emotional puzzles we deal with everyday in our human interrelations.
His work has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions including the 56th Venice Biennale, Italy; Centre Pompidou / Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, France; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France; S.M.A.K, Gent, Belgium; Grand Palais, Paris, France; El Eco, Mexico City, Mexico; Credac, Ivry, France; Frac Champagne-Ardenne, Rennes, France; MAC/VAL, Val-de-Marne, France; Musée d’Art Moderne de Saint-Etienne, France; Biennale d’art contemporain in Rennes, France; MNAC, Bucharest, Romania ; LiveInYourHead, Geneva, Switzerland.
