Mireille Vautier uses fragile media such as plastic bags and creates complex shapes and patterns that evoke both the intricacies of the body and the fragility of the vessel.
Mireille Vautier writes “The human body is my main source of inspiration. Its inside and outside, its wounds and its vivid memory; skeleton, organs, ex-votos, precious jewelry protected by the skin....The human body is a relic, a base for work dealing with memory.”
She graduated from the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in 1986 and has exhibited works on paper, glass as well as her embroideries in numerous exhibitions across France. “Embroidered” will be the artist’s first one-person exhibition in the United States.
