Aurélie Mathigot is a photographer, plastic artist and embroidery craftswoman; she lives and works in Paris.
Aurélie Mathigot prints her photographs on artist’s canvas that she then partially embroiders. The embroidered elements are barely visible and sometimes so discrete that at first glance they go undetected.
Her constellation of embroidered works transcendent her photographs; photography captures and freezes the present, but embroidery enhances it.
Aurélie Mathigot remains much attached to the two-dimensional art form she first started working with: photography, but she also makes sculptures using rope, wool and cotton that she crochets and associates with other, every-day materials such as wood, wax and ceramics.
Her work is structured around the illusion of reality: making reality look different, creating a textile-reality of the world around us, and adding impressions of surrounding and invading.
The artist has created a unique object for Galerie Chevalier and Parsua, a monochrome and very graphical tapestry.
