In her tapestries, ceramics and watercolors, Caroline Achaintre (*1969 in Toulouse, lives in London) finds her inspiration from a wealth of images whose origins can be found in postmodern design, art history, high and pop culture, as well as all kinds of album covers and masks. Her work includes large-scale tapestries, made with the technique of tufting, as well as ceramics depicting faces, animals, body parts, garments or everyday objects. Colours, shapes, and contours often flow into one another, lending the works something mysterious and chimerical. The small-scale watercolours often find themselves in a similar limbo; they contract and expand at the same time.
The choice of materials, the way they are processed and the contrasting colours turn her works into sensual objects. They seduce you to touch them, stroke them or to even immerse yourself completely in them. For her first institutional solo exhibition in Germany, Achaintre presents a series of new psychedelically appearing works.
