Growing up, Being and Ageing


“Author of many videos, as well as installations, photos and even paintings, Clara Scherrer progresses into the matter with attention and fastidiousness. Gathering objects, giving them a second life, arranging them to create a work of art and letting herself be surprised by the story it tells at the end of the process. That is the way she creates.

By working with salvaged items, the artist goes through time, creating links between people, observing life. Growing Up, Being and Ageing addresses these themes mixing her family and intimate story to the collective memory. Thus the apparent softness and restraint of her work also sometimes show violent feelings: anger, cruelty, joy, indignation.”

 Wolves, Owls, Stones, Thugs

 

“At the beginning, there were the leaves fallen from the magnolia tree in my garden, a raw material I started to paint. The leaves then became a tree which in my mind slowly took the dimension of a forest. This was therefore going to happen in a forest.

 

By putting 2 x 7 pairs of children shoes in the forest darkness, I thought about the Gustave Doré’s etchings, showing Tom Thumb. In this Charles Perrault story as in many legends and fairy tales, the forest has an important role. We can wonder what this ubiquity hides…"

 The inheritance

 

This art work is made of torn and sows again pieces of clothes hanged in three rows. The daughter, the mother and the grandmother; it is telling about the transmission between generations, the repeated traditions and the psychological bond mother/daughter.

How to make the difference between what belongs to us and what has been transmitted to us trough the past events and traumas?

With the clean piece of clothe hanging, a message of reconstruction and repetition is sent but also the daily work of women and the constant tasks they have to do.

These scarified women clothes, however white and in movement, are the sign of a possible renewal and repair.

Break-in

 

Break-in is a short movie about women abuse. 

A young woman is tiring up a white dress with a pair of scissors under the eye of an elderly woman who sowing nearby. 

This short movie relies on only one shoot filmed like a performance in which the artist has mutilated the dress. 

The dress which was completely cut out during the shooting and after hours of hard work, had been sow back together and  rigidified . The dress has since been part of many art set up and has followed the artist during performances.

The hostage-taking occured at School in the town of Beslan, North Ossetia, an autonomous republic in the North Caucasus, region of the Russian Federation. On the third day of the standoff, Russian security forces stormed the building, using tanks, incendiary rockets, and other heavy weapons. A series of explosions shook the school, followed by a fire which engulfed the building and a chaotic gun battle between the hostage-takers and Russian security forces. Ultimately, at least 334 hostages were killed, including 186 children; hundreds more were injured and many were reported missing.
