Mathilde Roussel is a French artist based in Paris. Her artwork explores the questions around human being in what it is the most imperceptible. It is linked to a search to reveal through metaphor, our inner image.
She wants to find the shape, the color, the dimension of our mental landscape. Her autonomous preparatory drawings allow her to formally think her sculptures which become drawings in space. Through her explorations, she strives to question time considering both human and vegetal time. Her work becomes a mapping of our body, an anatomy of time and space that we occupy by our fragile presence in the world.
Life of grass is one of her amazing works. The natural world, ingested as food becomes a component of human being. Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it’s origin, it’s transport, has an impact on us beyond it’s taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world – of abundance, of famine – and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality.
So, check it out the pictures and have a happy Friday!
