Exhibition: 15.09 – 12.11.2016
A line takes the form of a flower, a point becomes a planet and a peeled orange reveals its insides. Pauline Bazignan uses a handful of simple, almost primitive elements to delve deep inside of her subjects, revealing their inner beauty.
Under the title Vulcano, she presents to us her most recent series of sculptures and paintings.
It is through the void, or rather, through subtraction that Pauline Bazignan exposes to us a world usually invisible to the naked eye. Fire and water serve her during this process. Her process during painting involves using water to remove colour and density. In her sculptures, she uses the same extraction method, but this time with fire. By forming organic, hollow objects, she discloses to us a natural vacuum, highlighting the void in what is left.
The exhibition is also an opportunity to discover the collaboration between Pauline Bazignan and the perfumer Marie Le Febvre. Marie, whose laboratory is in the same vicinity as Cavuspace, will create subtle scents that share an acute dialogue with the artist’s work.
Pauline Bazignan, (* 1974) studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris, where she also lives and works. Vulcano is her first solo exhibition Berlin and in Germany.
