BIO

Solanne Bernard (b.1991, Paris) is one of the co-founders of HAZE. She work predominantly on large-scale installations - with ceramics as a central component - merging the imagery of abstracted body parts, plants and animals 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 find ways to act out the complexities between desire, violence and disgust.

Exhibitions include RCA/Slade show Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London; #1, KOMMET, France; Biennale du CRAC Champigny-Sur-Marne, France; Quiet Conflict, for POPPOSITIONS Capital of Woke, Brussels, with L.E.M.O.W. Editions; Winner of Prix Aveyron Culture 2018; La Raison est une Fleur’, KEIV, Athens
