Tapestry after a cardboard by Aurélie Mathigot, French artist
Hand woven, warp in cotton, weft in wool
Unique piece, signed by the artist
Aurélie Mathigot is very attached to the practice of photography, which she stitches up in places to freeze a movement, to underline a detail, but in parallel to this work, in two dimensions, she makes sculptures in rope, wool, cotton, using the technique of crochet and by associating other materials from our daily life: wood, wax, ceramics.
Her work is built around an illusion of reality: to give a new appearance, to conceive a textile-reality of what surrounds us, with an idea of covering and invasion.
For his first tapestry of lice, the artist started from his sketchbooks made during his travels.
