Coeur de Baleine

Through sculpture, installation art and performance, I work with metal. The status is not important when talking about the material. I tirelessly try to modify the invisible particles of steel. It is mainly to provoke a shift in the every-day shape of objects, I seek to move the atoms to the limits of their capacities. I am looking for the contradiction of the act and the form and try to feel through my sculptures that this material is discontinuous, fragile and full of emptiness and at the same time very dense, heavy and weighty. To find a breath of air in the inert mass. In doing so, I often unconsciously try to make the appearance of the material contradict its constitution. Through its form, its volume, its temperature, its balance emanates a kind of poetry. Caroline Brisset Exhibitions Each form is a temporary balance, it is in movement. Every change is a catastrophe and every catastrophe a resurrection. I manipulate the metal and try to reveal its intrinsic energy. I try to take into account all its properties. I explore its limits and its physical possibilities, heat it, hammer it, twist it. I try to make it say something about itself. It can be a feeling of exacerbated heaviness, or on the contrary a fineness and an unusual fragility, or an imbalance which troubles by its posture and its form. It is an open dialogue with the material. Formal capacities are then revealed in a material that becomes an object imbued with a singular identity, and which sometimes comes from the organic or the living.
