Focus on … Caroline Achaintre
Between crumpled and smooth, soft and hard, supple and rigid, opaque or openwork, the leather forms fashioned by Caroline Achaintre recall shells, wings, totems and other organic shapes. It is the weight that creates the volume, the cut-out that lets the relief emerge. Like accessories that one could take hold of and dress up in, these objects evoke fashion clothes, primitive masks or skins, on a human scale. Playing with right side and left side, black and colour, the remains take on the glow and colours of life under the artist’s fingers.
