Sculpting Diverse Materials

Forms, Volume and Space

“Throughout their career paths, artists are faced with various challenges and demands. These events allow them to set bases for new research, further develop a subject, experiment with new techniques and thus open themselves to new possibilities. Whatever the creative context may be, symposium, artistic residence or public art contest, artworks have a story and reasons to exist.” Nathalie Racicot, Commissionner, De l’idée au geste exhibition 2018.

In the world of art, a creator is often defined according to his artistic practice in the mind of spectators. However, some creators manifest such versatility of genres and maintain a creative rapport with such a variety of materials that the usual characterizing nomenclatures cannot apply. Sculptor, textile artist, multidisciplinary artist and hybrid practice specialist, Carole Baillargeon is simultaneously all of that and much more.
