Caroline Mesquita, who was born in 1989 in Brest, France is a sculptor and video artist, mainly working with metal. She creates sculptures likes airplanes, spaceships and motorcycles, all journey in the direction of a radical imagination. Raw material provides the spark that animates her narrative engagement with notions of science fiction, religion, embodiment, transformation, sensuality, and sociability. Mesquita’s works are darkened, patinated and roughly textured through an oxidation process. With this technique, Mesquita manipulates the metal like a form of painting. These material transformations provide a format for storytelling about the human experience and the directness of action and exchange in relationships. Either around or using her metallic creations, she also creates videos, sound environments and performance films in which she appears herself.
