Céline Vahsen & Maëlle Dufour
From November 5th to December 9th, 2023

EXHIBITION CONCEPT by Yuna Mathieu-Chovet

Céline Vahsen’s practice is rooted in the textile medium. She is interested in the cultural aspects of weaving, its memory and its matrix link with digital culture. Her works, fabrics stretched on frames, evoke the pictorial tradition and are manually dyed and woven by the artist.

Maëlle Dufour’s practice ranges from sculpture to monumental installation, using a variety of media such as ceramics and glass. She addresses questions of memory, cultural and material heritage, the ambivalence of progress and the relationship between human beings and nature.

Céline Vahsen and Maëlle Dufour explore and study the material and its process, experimenting with its physical properties and highlighting the social and historical environment in which it is embedded. They question ancestral customs and their inscription in time, as if to better grasp the present.
