Chloe’s sculpture practice is an experimental approach of traditional techniques combined with metal shaping. The objects she creates often refer to medieval societies and their abundant production of disturbing forms. She manipulates symbols from different Western cultural contexts to question their paradoxes and uses them as experimental grounds. Her practice pushes her to question the empathetic power of forms, from sensuality to austerity, innocence to infamy. She explores their ability to provoke a physical sensation, often that of pain. The universe she summons resonates with those of witchcraft, torture, BDSM and adolescence, many favorable territories for evoking her relationship to existence, sexuality and culture.
At the heart of her practice is a dynamic of revaluation, that goes beyond the disguise and the reappropriation of symbols. The materials used are mainly recycled, sometimes directly from obsolete household objects.
