Gaëlle Chotard – What pierces me
Gaëlle Chotard is above all interested in drawing. She explores its innumerable possibilities, also creating a three-dimensional variant in space. After putting her sketches and wash drawings on paper, she employs “infrathin” piano strings and metallic cable sheaths, which she stretches, weaves, pierces, crochets, and hangs. Treated like sculpted materials, all of their physical attributes are revealed: fragility, lightness, and transparency allow for the interplay of light and shadow.
