Clémence Seilles
Born in 1984, France
Lives and works between Berlin and Amsterdam

At the border between art and design, the work of Clémence Seilles examines the role and function of matter and the way in which it represents contemporary behavior and scenarios (habitat, exhibition layout, relationship to the environment, etc.). Combining the anthropological study with an analysis of cultural customs, Clémence Seilles describes her work as “a poetic inventory of synthetic materials, which can be interpreted as a materialistic archeology of the contemporary West.”
