Matter in its broadest sense provides the core for Charlotte Charbonnel’s work, which examines the destabilized relationship between what the human eye can and cannot perceive. Inspired by scientific research, she conducts experiments with unusual materials such as glass, sound cards, and salt crystals that she reworks to reflect her artistic preoccupations. Her studio has become a laboratory of sensations and experiences that combines nature and science. Her installations inflame the different materials she uses to their deepest entrenchments and thereby offers new modes of exploration and apprehension.
Charlotte Charbonnel graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Tours and Ecole nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris. Her work has been shown at Maréchalerie in Versailles, at Verrière Hermès in Brussels, at Musée Réattu in Arles, at Gaité Lyrique, at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and at Pont Scorff in Bretagne.
