  Born in Elbeuf (France). Lives in Paris. Filmmaker and visual artist.
(Doctoral studies in Modern Literature-thesis on Pierre Klossowski and Leopold von Sacher-Masoch).
Pierre Coulibeuf uses contemporary creation as material for his cinematic and artistic work.
In a cross-disciplinary relation to film genres (fiction, experimental...), as well as to modes of presenting the image in motion (35mm projection, installation, video, photography), his works invent a place and a language on the borderline of the other arts, critiquing established forms and questioning representations of reality.
Since 1987, he has made short and feature-length films based on the universes of Pierre Klossowski, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Marina Abramovic, Michel Butor, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Jan Fabre, Meg Stuart...
His films have been selected in many international film festivals (fiction, experimental, video art). Pierre Coulibeuf makes installations with his films and photographs in galleries and museums. He has been artist invited in the International Pavillion of the Bienniale of Contemporary Art of Mercosul, Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 2005. His works are part of main public collections.
