Mathilde Tinturier was born in Lausanne in 1983. She received her degree from Geneva’s Fine Arts academy (now the HEAD) in 2006, following time as an exchange student at La Cambre (Brussels). In 2016, she had a three-month residency at the Maison de la Créativité in Conches (Geneva). She lives and works in Geneva, and is a member of the Federation of Artists at the Usine Kugler.
She artfully arranges simple and forgotten materials, using thread, wool and feathers, and thus creates work-both light and subtle-that make up her singularly animist universe. By re-using the pieces of nothing that surround us, by transforming them into objects of contemplation, she sharpens forgotten feelings within us.
