Hanging sculpture in the room The Miss Kot’átková
Folkloric and mythological objects and images are the source of inspiration for the forms Sylvie Auvray creates – all very mischievously provocative, impertinent, or simply playful. Her works are like the edges of a hole on the slip of which she has hastily drawn while it’s not hard but soft enough, before it was too late. Sylvie loves the idea that people can eat in her paintings. She turns them into giant plates with oversized forks, both too fragile and too heavy, unable to grab anything. The artist needs uncertainty to give life to her lively shapes: plaster and adrenalin, clay and adrenalin, enamels and adrenalin.
