AIRSTUDIO is a french creative studio that specialises in 3D views for (unbuilt) arhitecture and design.
Our task consist in finding a way of honouring each architect and each piece of architecture. We're always looking for "the good light", the good atmosphere or feelings. We're always trying to create a sensible relashionship between the light and the shadows... and make the story that should take place in the image possible!
Communication and understanding with the archi team are such important as our curiosity, sensibility and creativity! {in French}


Between reality and routine

@ VOL 8 ON JUL 04, 2014

In her work, Chloé Jarry conjures situations where art meets everyday life. She likes the indistinct sphere where these two realities mingle and interconnect, evoquing a never-ending dialogue between one and the other.
She has chosen the technique of earthenware as a material permitting me to mould and copy everyday objects : light bulbs, electrical sockets, adaptors, carpet slippers, grab-handles, pegs, plastic bottles forgotten on a bedside table... The technique of earthenware transforms the original object. During the steps of moulding, drying, and firing, the object gets distorted in a way that I cannot, and don’t wish to control, and my sculptures bear the traces of these accidents. Here’s what she is most interested in, as opposed to, for instance, a brand new and perfectly cast light switch freshly coming out of the production chain. I voluntarily keep the traces of my manipulation, I even leave the jagged edge you get during the process of casting. The hardly distorted form gives an impression of strangeness.
Her sculptures fully live in the space she offer to them. Discreet, they won’t change its function in the slightest, their presence will simply mark it in a subtle way, like appendixes from a parallel world.
She reproduces objects which are so typical for everyday life we don’t notice them any longer. Thus, her work offers a new regard on form, function, and space. {in French}
