Adapting and distilling the forms of mundane, every day objects such as cotton swabs and matches, Nadege Desgenétez creates sleek, graphic work that, paradoxically, evokes a sense of physical closeness and fragility.
“I am interested in exploring ideas of relationships, love and space between people,” says Desgenétez. “I also want to consider our connection to the sense of touch in an abstract way, sometimes playing on the tensions that lie within the anticipation of touch… In a time when our society is dissociating from physical activity, when the culture of the body is becoming more cosmetic than practical, I want to celebrate the vital power of our senses. I want to celebrate our ability and desire to touch and to feel.”
