Sandrine Beaudun. Paper artist.
Born in Paris in 1967. Lives and works in Bourgogne Franche Comté in France.
From the field of textiles and calligraphy.
She is a material visual artist.
In 2008, Sandrine Beaudun felt the need to come back to the question of the medium, to question it, as a fundamental source of more personal expression.
She learned the Japanese technique for paper-making, Kozo fiber in particular (Japanese mulberry) from masters.
The sheet and its resulting sheet become for her a field of experiences and encounters with life in its most creative form.
Sandrine Beaudun finds there the ever renewed promise of a territory of possibilities where the imaginary and creation can be express themselves.
The sheet is no longer a simple medium but becomes a molting, a skin,
and works through what constitutes it as well as the time needed for its creation.
It is a process which takes hold.
Her works take shape in large formats or three-dimensional works, creating spaces where fibers meet and light plays.
Hanging works, standing works, shaped works, its a physical dialogue which is established between the material and its exhibition.
