Sandrine Bringard

- Present

Sandrine Bringard was born in 1986 in Mulhouse – Alsace – in France where she lives and works.

She graduated from Decorative Arts in Strasbourg in 2010 and embarked on a work of sculptor-ceramist who is part of the world of contemporary ceramics. Her creations question and approach the Body, the parts of the Body in movements of fusion, mutation, separation. Her sculptures combining body parts and objects refer to a form of resistance but always in search of clues for living and for surviving. They accompany our reflections on our human nature.

Bringard’s work in clay maintains a physical relationship with the earth as she describes, ‘this material endowed with a memory which has the capacity to record the pressure of its fingers’.

The evolution of her work leads her to the use of other materials, for example, rubber, wool, rope, wood, and neoprene in filaments, integrating further colour and texture.

Water remains a determining element and a source of inspiration in Bringard’s practice, fuelled by the writings of the philosopher, Gaston Bachelard. Water that is never present but evoked by textures, by objects borrowed from the aquatic environment which mutate and merge with the body or part of the body. She treats the body as a container filled with thoughts, moods and fluids. The body parts and limbs she creates are, in her words, ‘exhibited as autonomous “individuals”, seemingly free to move guided by their feelings’.
