Juliette Sallin is a fiber artist who has always been fascinated by the way we perceive nature through our senses. She translates this interest into sculptures made of semi abstract plant shapes used as archetypal and multi-sensory images of our emotions.
Her works are made of silk, but sometimes also of wood, paper and brass. Much of her process is devoted to plant dyes. The leaves, flowers, roots and bark that she uses contain pigments that give the fabric a particular vibration, as if the essence of plants were being transposed into the sculptures. The immersive experience of her work is then enriched with subtle sensualities and vegetal delicacies.
Born in 1980 in Geneva, Switzerland, Juliette Sallin studied textile design at the University of Florence, new media at the HEAD Geneva and Kingston University (GB). Two-time recipient of the Swiss Ikea Foundation (2009 and 2013), Juliette has exhibited in Switzerland and Great Britain. Her work is held in private collections in Europe and north America.
