2022 Flesh and Blood
2021 Flowing Eyes
The remains of the absent
AGATHE DUPEROU (1992)
happily plays with the codes of ceramic, the original modelling material, exploding the form by reinventing its function: the plastic inventiveness is accompanied by a semantic shift and one guesses a disturbing but somewhat reassuring presence.
Enigmatic corporeality where the assignment of meanings is
diverted: screens and mirrors no longer reflect our own or the world’s image, they are called to be something other, organic, doomed to charge and change our gaze.
These non-functional object-things claim to be the bearers of a living interior landscape that remains elusive.
