OPEN AIR and FIBRE ART

I live and I work in a forest environment, in Picardie. These ever changing surroundings have a great impact on my artistic approach.

 

IMPRESSIONS d'HALATTE,  2015 -2016

I try to underline a feeling of fragility by placing lacy, transparent textile pieces in the city, forest or river spaces.

I use the notions of flexibility and transformation to do very light, ephemeral installations ; alternately traps or offering, my structures are never frozen, they vibrate between light and shadow, they move in the wind, in a succession of contradictory images, which reflect a plural reality.

Both solid and fragile, shells devoid of any contents, the artificial shapes seep, ripple, get through space and interact with the chosen sites.

When I work in public space, I enter the people's daily  setting. Even if my Installations are fleeting, they create a slight change of scenary for passerbys ; I think it is never anodyne, and I emphasize each time about the harmless, aerial and temporary aspect of my landscaping Installations.

I choose trivial materials, I craft them with primitive textile techniques to produce simple geometric shapes, then I install these flexible structures in different aeras. Most often, I use gift wrap ribbon, of course because I am particularly aware of its symbol of present and festive events and I like its hues, its lightness, its fluidity, its weather resistance.
