Pauline Esparon plays with the notion of «rawness», a form of archaism, a primary state of materials before their standardization by industry. Forms from the vegetal, the animal or the mineral worlds can be intertwined. Her works always start with the investigation of materials, and slide from an instinctive research to a definite shape.
This approach is as sensible as contextual, by questioning both the qualities of materials and the culture of materials, their heritage, their survival, their systems. Each project envisions a proposition to tweak production for the better and consider humble materials, processes, purposes of production as well as possible perspectives for crafts.
Pauline Esparon's work has entered prestigious public collections, such as Le Mobilier National and the CNAP (Centre National d'Arts Plastiques).
