Solanne Bernard

Solanne Bernard (b.1991, Paris) lives and works in London, where she received an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art (2020).

She works predominantly with ceramic and silicone, merging the imagery of abstracted body parts and plants into hybrid sculptural forms. The hybridity of her works helps highlight the roles the fluidity and intertwinement of things together have in constructing a sense of unease and visceral displacement. In this way, the work explores how subjectivity can oscillate between human/animal/plant and object, pushing the material to see what it can do as subject and finding ways to act out the complexities between desire, violence and disgust.

Selected exhibitions include: Inverted Corneum, The Split Gallery, London (2023); South Open, OHSH Projects, London (2023); Iridesence, Alkinois, Athens (2022); Finalist of the Ingram Prize, Unit 1 Gallery Workshop, London (2022); Destructive Mollusc,Staffordshire St , London (2022); Synthesis, curated by Delphian Gallery, Saatchi Gallery, London (2022); Acme Vision, SB34, Brussels (2021); Fertile Laziness, Platform Southwark, London (2021); Graduate show, Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London (2020); Shortlisted for Biennale du CRAC Champigny-Sur-Marne, France (2020).
