Ateliers d'Art de France


Christine Coste



Based on an encompassing theme (the body), Christine Coste intertwines three specific art forms: ceramics, drawing and performing arts. 

The artist often explores the notions of fragment and hybridisation, as in corpusgraphie, a collection of ceramic sculptures in which man and animal are fused together. Stoneware hybrid mutants enhanced with black iron pencil, these condensed bodies display their hairiness, covered in a fleece-like mix of hair and fur. The faces are often hidden or obliterated to make it easier to understand the nature of these creatures transformed by metamorphosis, an encounter, the search for identity and emancipation.
