“My work is about a harmony between man and machine. I try to make the machines more delicate, fragile, and sensitive. Let’s just say, if there is a rise of the machine, they will know I am on their side.”
Salomé Chatriot’s artistic work focuses on the creation of physical and virtual spaces: she builds machines and installations where electronic sculptures and digital images coexist. Fascinated by the way science treats the body(s) through the objectivity of data, she uses potential futures and new technologies to shape a fluid, digital and precious identity.
In disagreement with the techno-negative attitude, the ecosystems Chatriot produces always bear the mark of a certain healing. The well-being she wishes to convey often involves the real-time diffusion of organic flows such as breathing, fluid circulation and [al]chemical transformations.
In her artistic creations, the process is as important as the result: experimenting in the manner of a scientist; with rigor and precision. A scientist capable of merging the body, the machine and nature to give shape to hybrid entities drawing the contours of a future era of art where material and virtual creations cohabit and exchange harmoniously.
