Annabelle Moreau (b. 1976, Cape Town) is a French Italian artist. She completed a Postgraduate Diploma in fine art at the Royal Academy of Arts in London followed by a Postgraduate diploma in Modern Philosophy in Literature and Art at Goldsmith College. Moreau has been awarded the Grant for Visual Arts by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in 2016.

Annabelle Moreau's artistic practice spans a diverse array of mediums, including painting, sculpture, drawing, performance, and photography. She meticulously considers placement, contextualized space, and materials in her work, enabling her to delve into different aspects of her research. Moreau's work is characterized by a continuous process of development and transformation, initially drawing inspiration from Spatialism and artists like Lucio Fontana and Luciano Fabro. This evolution has led to installations that emphasize the viewer's interaction with the artwork, incorporating elements such as light, space, time, and sensory experiences. 

Her practice is concerned with the notion of space, time and perception. Large installations of monumental paintings and sculpture become the mean by which the artist explores the consumption and apprehension of space. Copper, brass, aluminium and steel are the main support for her work. The choice of material, mundane objects and their identity within the context in which they are presented plays a major role.
