Oeuvres de Sophie Mathilde TaussSensitive matter
Mud, wood, marble, mother-of-pearl, glass, gold, bronze: a wide variety of materials are used in the artist's sculptures. An entire section is dedicated to the subject, and will allow you to touch the works. Through the choice of material and the subtle work of colors, the artist manages to bring to the surface the interiority of her characters.

The artist has seized the mother-of-pearl by working pieces found in fields, gardens and paths of the region. She is committed to giving them a new life in her creations. What if waste could be reinvented? Sophie-Mathilde Tauss invites us to reverse our perspectives.
