Mathilde Roussel is a French artist based in Paris. Her artwork explores the questions around human being in what it is the most imperceptible. It is linked to a search to reveal through metaphor, our inner image. She wants to find the shape, the color, the dimension of our mental landscape. Her autonomous preparatory drawings allow her to formally think her sculptures which become drawings in space. Through her explorations, she strives to question time considering both human and vegetal time. Her work becomes a mapping of our body, an anatomy of time and space that we occupy by our fragile presence in the world.
About this series called “Echology” exhibited at Anatomia Botanica, Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art, Nashville… “Dew, milk, pollen, sap, branches, grass, bark, etched glass jars. Resonances between the human body and nature are created by filling scientifical jars labelled with human body parts, with plant elements. The living ingredients inside the jars change and metamorphose through time.” It´s so cool her simple and minimal way of representing such huge (
vital) things. Very Clever!
The most vital thing in a man’s life is his mental attitude.
