Margaux Pecorari




Everything is born from the encounter between light and a material, brass. One sublimates the other; and the other responds. Brass is an amazing metal that oscillates between precious and poor. I am attracted by its reflections, its imperfections, sometimes even by its dark streaks which come to disturb the monotony of the smooth metal. In my work, brass is omnipresent, it coats the thousands of Parisian ties that make up each of my works. The Parisian tie is a fascinating object. Almost banal, yet sublime. Round and smooth, but sharp. Docile but insubordinate, flexible but solid. It is an extremely lively object, just waiting to surprise. And when they accumulate, when the repetition of the same - until saturation, and the superposition of its stems draw and sculpt, it is almost a spectacle of living art that appears; the sheet of paper is the scene, the fasteners are the actors. Just put the light on them for the show to begin. I am surprised each time multiple faces that this tiny mechanical body takes. Infinite possibilities it offers to create a new show. The result is the image of the object, in perpetual motion, oscillating between the strict and the eccentric, between order and chaos. A permanent tug that feeds on contrasting and vivid emotions.
