Elodie Antoine



Born in 1978, lives and works in Brussels.
Elodie Antoine makes use of flexible materials such as thread, fabric, wallpaper, wool carpet and felt, working with everyday items-chairs, frames, sinks-but always taking them beyond their limits. Antoine strives for taking complete possession of the space, placing objects in a way which seems as if they self-generated there. She uses textiles in order to create a universe made of organic and vegetable matter where all the items, with their peculiar shapes, seem to be in a state of progression. She explores the potential of materials by allowing them to multiply and outgrow in a way that is natural to them, but which she nonetheless cleverly controls. The proliferating and hybrid installations could be in line with artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Annette Messager, Eva Hesse, and Dorothea Tanning.
