Emilie Ding

Unfolding between drawing and sculpture, Emilie Ding’s practice is inspired by the structural shapes of materials found in construction and modern architecture. Issued from these aesthetics and the spaces that surround us, elements such as crosses, angles, metal, concrete, and raw materials are used, modified, manhandled by the artist who pushes back their limits.

By multiplying her works on paper or as well as isolating them in the space, the artist is trying, though their format, technics and signs she put on them, to take the body of the visitor into the force fields created between these objets, the architecture of the place they are, and its history.
