Macha Poirier – 10 Art Competition
Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 10 Art Competition
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.
I always work in collaboration with the photographer Juliette Berny, which allows us to imagine as well as possible the scenographies and lighting best adapted to the artistic project in progress.
My creations, in between art objects and jewels, are often articulated around the themes of health, disease, emotions and experiences.
Therefore, my aim is to materialize the emotions and feelings that the healer may difficultly exteriorize to his patients, from fear to anger, from pain to sadness, from doubt to hope.
My art compensates for the few moments we can obtain at the hospital for a medical care based on a relationship with the patient. I never felt so close to them than through my creations, which are a relief from my past frustration or my patient’s ones.
My pieces are the reflection of all these injured bodies and hearts, and there is, in every one of them, always a fragment of their personal history, of their soul.
Contemporary art therapist, I express myself to cover wounds, mine, theirs, and yours.
Medical artist or poetic surgeon, I metaphorically dissect the disease. The wounded body becomes my canvas, the materials my plaster.
This time, the subject is violence against women, and it’s expressed through aggressive jewelry-objects, powerful photos and a strong text.
