<- Solanne Bernard

Solanne Bernard (b.Paris) lives and works in London, where she received an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art (2020).

She works predominantly with ceramics and silicone, merging the imagery of abstracted body parts and plants into hybrid sculptural forms. The hybridity of her works helps highlight the roles the fluidity and intertwinement of things together have in constructing a sense of unease and visceral displacement. 

In this way, the work explores how subjectivity can oscillate between human/animal/plant and object, pushing the material to see what it can do as subject and finding ways to act out the complexities between desire, violence and disgust.
