Nadège Mouyssinat

Overview

Nadège Mouyssinat was born in 1984 in Toulouse (France). She studied art and art history at the University of Bordeaux then in Limoges. She has evolved for 10 years in the demanding world of luxury items, as a designer for the porcelain factories of Limoges. Technical mastery and the sublimation of material are omnipresent. She uses porcelain and a savoir faire anchored in the traditions of Limoges. Her work creates a sensual, organic and mysterious universe. Her aesthetic and forms are the fruit of research fueled by literature, history, and legends.

 

"In my artistic practise, I highlight a virtuoso execution, which aims at the perfect, at the mastered. This work is much more than a stylistic exercise, this cold and ossified sensualism of the artwork has an assumed place in my artistic approach. I like echoing it with the doubt, the unidentifiable, the mysterious, in the style of predatory or poisonous flowers which have only their beauty to attract their preys. The vibration which it exudes, the attraction and the distancing which it causes, is a central questioning in my work.”
