In her exhibition Claire Paugam presents a view of a grand landscape. With a city bench in the middle of the gallery space, it resembles an observation platform and the landscape might seem as an existent view. However, things are not always as they seem. Shapelessness, entropy and the feeling of letting go are recurring themes in the artist’s works. For this exhibition Claire contemplates the connection between body, landscape and nature, asking questions like; Where do we place ourselves within/against the landscape? Where does the body end and the landscape begin? In her work, Claire is preoccupied with such in-between conditions; what is outside and what is inside, what is and what is not, using visual analogy as a tool to express her thoughts and imagination.
Claire Paugam was born in France in 1991 and is currently based in Reykjavík.
