Kalie Granier is a French interdisciplinary artist currently based in Santa Cruz, California. Her artistic explores the profound interdependence that exists between humans and non-human entities, all through the lens of ecofeminist values. She investigates the intricate connections between our environments, their ecosystems, and the human body within the context of this contemporary geological era. Her work serves to illuminate imbalances both social and ecological while also envisioning alternative narratives that might lead to a more equitable future. 

Kalie’s research operates at the intersection of art, science, and activism. Her approach is characterized by close collaboration and dialogue with scientists and environmentalists. Her deep commitment to ecological issues permeates her creative process, which encompasses various mediums such as video, installation, the upcycling of local natural materials collected from beaches, and the use of raw pigments in earth-based painting. Guided by emotions as a compass, Kalie embarks on a journey toward collective consciousness and regenerative togetherness, seeking to inspire positive change.

In addition to her artistic endeavors, Kalie is a co-founder of Loud Spring, a European-American Art Tank/Collective that operates as a 501(c)(3) organization. It is based in the San Francisco/Oakland area and draws inspiration from ecofeminism.
