Clémentine Dupré is a sculptor and ceramic artist who lives and works in Normandy, France. After majoring in Anthropology and pursuing research on the relationship between Art and Politics in China, Clémentine Dupré enters the Duperré School of Applied Arts in Paris. It is there, in the ceramics workshop, that she breaks new ground with her innovative modules being consumed by aggregations of tiny beads; ceramic embodiments of Eros and Thanatos.
During her several residencies in Japan, she turns her attention to architectonics and symbolic habitat. Her work shifts more radically towards sculptural expression as she explores notions inherent to inhabiting a given space, time or existence. Her personal sentience makes ceramics her medium of choice. She shapes, assembles, and rethinks ceramics in order to create architecturalized spaces, where void and movement are central notions.
Building voids, offering a tangible and intangible interpretation of space, and testing the cycles of construction and deconstruction are fundamental principles underlying her work.
