FASCINATED BY MOVEMENT AND SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS
driven by an inner fascination with the essence of movement as well as curiosity about malleable yet strong natural materials, aurelie hoegy creates a wide range of powerful works breaking barriers between normality and abnormality. the french artist and designer uses movement as a medium and embodies it through her extensive work, which includes limited edition objects, installations, furniture, and lighting pieces. using sustainable organic materials, like rattan fibers, the designer shapes matter into what seems like a wild choreography in space or a graceful aerial ocean wave. ‘I’m letting myself be guided by the movement of the fiber itself, all at once shaping matter into an architecture of the body in movement,’ she mentions.
