- Marie Poirier – Villebon Sur Yvette, France
Graduated of an AFEDAP certification (Paris, France) in 2016, I observe the jewel as the former nurse I used to be before approaching the world of jewellery. My creations, in between art objects and jewels, are often articulated around the themes of health, disease, emotions and experiences. Thus, I extend this concept to the scenography of my pieces and the choice of my models.
My scientific approach encourages me to experiment even more and to use all types of materials : from metal to lichen, through epic porcine spines, plastic or ferrofluid.
Medical artist or poetic surgeon, I metaphorically dissect the disease. The wounded body becomes my canvas, the materials my plaster.
