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

She works predominantly on installations merging the imagery of abstracted body parts and plants into hybrid sculptural forms. The hybridity of her works helps highlight the roles that 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 a subject and finding ways to act out the complexities between desire, violence and disgust.

Solanne Bernard, née à Paris, vit et travaille à Londres où elle a obtenu son diplôme en sculpture (MA) du Royal College of Art (2020).

Son travail d’installation inclut principalement des céramiques et des moulages en silicone, créant des formes sculpturales hybrides. Sa pratique artistique explore les complexités et contradictions qui existent dans la fluidité des rapports entre les éléments du monde vivant et du monde non-vivant, et tente de redéfinir notre position entre les deux.

Elle se concentre ainsi sur la manière dont la subjectivité peut osciller entre l’humain, l’animal, la plante et l’objet, créant des tensions entre le désir, le dégoût, la séduction et la violence.
