DOMESTICATE ME

“Domesticate Me”, the first exhibition in France of Cristin Richard, presented by La Découpe.

Using sculpture, Cristin Richard investigates a wide range of artistic, psychological and sociological topics.  Her works question identity, female sexuality and social standards.  Experimenting with colour, texture and transparency allows her to transform a repulsive material into something beautiful.  Her sculptures are often complex metaphors of women’s roles in society.  Some pieces can also be worn, which transforms the experience into a whole performance.  Furthermore, a unique performance was presented at the opening, in participation with Lydie Vareilhes, to music composed by Czarling.

For her exhibition at La Découpe, and after one month’s residence, the artist chose to introduce unique and original pieces, ironically questioning the duties of the housewife.  Her works, based around domestication of the female body in it’s interior, were presented in different rooms of the apartment/ gallery.
