In her latest works Aurélie Mathigot twists all those easy-identifiable things by covering them with a new textured layer which doesn’t differ anything at all from the nature of the object itself. She’s now using photography which she prints on a canvas which then she embroiders partially.
At the same time while working with this canvas dimension mixing image & textile she’s also become pretty known for her rope, wool & cotton sculptures using the hook technique. She loves to be in contact with her materials, the artisan know-how needed for each technique which demands a learning process at a time.
If these two practices are textile related, her works in general are always based on a possible illusion of reality. She tries to give the original image a new look, conceive a textile-reality of our environment and confusing the visitor by proposing the idea of layering the canvas and at the same time layering our memory and the time.
With Trame Aurélie will be presenting works which are city related, urban frozen frames. You have until March 5th to pass by the Parisian Since Upian gallery (211 rue Saint-Maur 75010 Paris) and if you do… well… enjoy!
