Opening on Thursday 2 April from 18:00 to 21:00
The Fondation Thalie is please to present Caroline Achaintre‘s first monographic exhibition in Belgium.
Caroline Achaintre (born in Toulouse in 1969, lives in London) works on a wide variety of media, including textiles, ceramics, prints and watercolors, using techniques typically associated with applied arts. Her sculptures, wall hangings in tufted wool, drawings and paintings are colorful and powerfully graphic, and create an atmosphere both playful and absurd. Citing German expressionism, British post-war sculpture and primitivism as influences, her work also refers to pop culture through science fiction, psychedelic and horror films.
Caroline Achaintre participated in numerous exhibitions, including Making & Unmaking at Camden Arts Center, London in 2016, and at the 13th Triennale of the Baltic States in 2018. Her solo exhibitions include Caroline Achaintre, Art Now at Tate Britain, London in 2015 and Duo Infernal at the Galerie Art: Concept, Paris in 2018. Caroline Achaintre is represented by Galerie Art: Concept, Paris.
