About

Different artistic fields cross each other in Clothilde Matta's work , among others, photography , painting , video and theatre .This transdisciplinarity has become intrinsic to her artistic creation and has led to moves , passages and multiple encirclements , which propose to decompartmentalize the

...

vision of the female body .
Aged 28 , Clothilde attends a double education in Beaux- Arts and in theatre .She later gets into the Beaux Arts in Lyon with a practice of painting , carries on with carving on metal at the Atelier Paul Fleury and also works on video and installation in tandem, in an atelier of the Beaux-Arts in Paris . At the same time , she starts her theatrical studies at the Cours Simon and Florent . She begins doing photographic shots after leaving Lyon , without any particular formal studies , just having a compulsive and passionate wish to capture moments .
Through sensuous and poetic images , she draws forth a langage of hybridization , she likes confusing the issue at hand by mixing several artistic disciplines , questioning the frontier between eroticism and the displayed body .She works on mystic and at the time sensual images , bearing numerous interrogations concerning our relationship to the world , notably the representation of female's desire , expressing without beating about the bush through fragments , a specific detail .The ' Hors champ ' is as important as what is shown , it is a work on the phantasm's strength .The unspeakable and inexpressible sacred suddenly appears and exists grace to a profane rift , which she chooses to show , rousing ordre or chaos .
The notion of the mystical is always present in Matta's work , either in the light which reveals the body or hides it - in an investigation of the appearance or disappearance of these bodies or through biblical and historic references .
