Presentation

Juliette Minchin was born in 1992, she lives and works in Paris.

Graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in scenography and the Beaux-Arts de Paris, Juliette Minchin practices sculpture, installation, video and drawing. She is working with matter, light, sense of smell and sound. In her work, she explores concepts related to cyclic time and transformation, her use of natural materials (plaster, earth, wax or liquid) gives her sculptures an organic dimension whose surface is close in its aspect to the skin.
