Pauline Esparon plays with the notion of "rawness", a form of archaism, a primary state of materials before they become standardized by industry. Forms from the vegetal, the animal or the mineral worlds become playful and can be intertwined. Her works always start with the investigation of materials, and slide from an instinctive research to a definite shape. Objects are plural, in order to constitute a collection, an ensemble, an atmosphere.
This approach, almost literally environmental, is as sensible as contextual, by questioning both the qualities of materials and the culture of materials, their heritage, their survival, their systems. Each project envisions a proposition to tweak production for the better and consider humble materials, processes, purposes of production as well as possible perspectives for crafts.
