Biography / Juliette Clovis

French artist Juliette Clovis deals with three main subjects: the connection between human beings and nature; the duality between life and death; and the dialogue between tradition and modernity. After extensive studies in art history, law, sculpture and a degree in graphic design, Clovis has been exhibiting her art in an international context for over ten years. Her work can be found on her collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/14 in 2019.

Clovis’ porcelain sculptures are imbued with a combination of mythological, historical and religious references. After her first very colorful works, the artist has now developed a largely monochrome oeuvre that explores modern themes through Baroque forms. Through the use of porcelain, she confronts her deeply contemporary vision of art with a traditional medium. Clovis, however, does not stop at the three-dimensionality of her sculptures - she uses the additional possibilities of china painting to preserve the connection to drawing.
