Big Bang Memorial

BY GA√čLLE LE GUILLOU
@ VOL 9 ON DEC 02, 2014

Pechakucha was the opportunity for Gaëlle Le Guillou to speak about her deep project: it is an artistic and experimental project at long term in the cemetery of Bouteillerie in Nantes.
This project is supported by the association BIG BANG MEMORIAL. The idea of this association is to take a fresh look at the intimate and common that are cemeteries.

Ceramist Sculptrice, she chooses this material because she can imagine forms and volumes .
She experiments with coloured enamels, textures, by renewing regularly her themes of inspirations.
She draws her inspiration from her childhood, from fashionably, architecture, arts, and nature.
She creates her universe, fanciful and in movement, even if it is about the death.
That is characteristic in her work, and her life. {in french}
