PAULINE-ROSE DUMAS

 

Pauline-Rose Dumas works and lives in Paris. Born in 1996


Pauline-Rose Dumas is a french textile artist who currently works at Le6B Saint-Denis “Lieux de creation et de diffusion” (Paris, FR) an industrial building in the north suburb of Paris converted into shared ateliers.  After graduating from a BA in Textile Design at theUAL Chelsea College of Arts (London, UK) in 2019, she finished earlier this year a 6 months residency at the Berlin Art Institute (Berlin, DE). There she developed her textile practise into big scale pieces, half way between sensitive moving images and sculpture. These pieces were presented at her first solo exhibition “Yesterdays” at the BAI. Pauline-Rose has previously worked for the artistand designer Marlène Huissoud (Paris, FR / 2019), interned at Hermès (Paris, FR/ 2018) and worked as a lithography printer at Idem (Paris, FR / 2016). She was immersed and trained with craftsmen before dedicating herself to her own artistic practise. 

“The textile medium enables me to tell a story, my story, and through it, a story of the transmission of know-how. For me, the actions of sewing, printing, assembling and repairing bear a strong symbolic significance. In an approach similar to choreography, these gestures can expand intimate moments and render the multiplicity of the images we are surrounded by. Textile is an intervention that opens the image or the sculpture to a sensory dimension”.
