LKFF Art & Sculpture Projects is proud to present, for the rst time in Belgium, the French artist Clothilde Gosset.
During the cold winter seasons, it’s a pleasure to get carried away by the gentle poetry of Clothilde Gosset’s sculptures. When refinement and know-how get together, the result is sublime.
Since early childhood, Clothilde Gosset is bathed in the universe of woodcarving and carries the artistic gene transmitted through three generations in her family. Growing up amidst wood chips, her love of wood grew naturally. Everything started with a slate of mahogany, a gift from her father into which she sculpted the mahogany tree itself. A seed was planted that was about to grow strong, today allowing us to dive creatively into the core of Nature.
Her fingers work the wood as if it were lace, domineering shadows and light with an impressive nesse. She sculpts with humble respect of the wood matter. Leaves, branches, truncs are delicately chiseled. The theme of Nature, essence of her creations, strikes us by its elegant simplicity and its strength. Fascinated by changes, mutations, growths and evolutions, Clothilde explores all art forms through ethical and sustainable values.
The Silva3 exhibition wants itself soothing, like a walk through the forest where all our senses awaken. Everything seems surprisingly familiar, suggesting perfumes of humid earth or drying leaves, the cracking of branches and leaves underneath our steps...
Her artistic ideas developped along with an obsessive desire of making functional artworks. At the border between art and design, Clothilde Gosset’s creations are meditations, each piece resulting from an encounter or a discovery forging a new idea in her creative mind. Silva is the result of her encounters with Nature at its purest.
On view until January 13, 2018
