Brigitte’s artistic practice encompasses installation, sculpture, drawing, and the occasional moving component. Using any material that suits her.
She is interested in humanity’s continuous attempts to order, measure and map everything, in a search for world understanding. A search that can exist in a small act or a megalomaniac gesture.
Especially the failures inherent to this pursuit are at the center of her work. With an attention for (im)practicality, (im)possibility and (in)visibility, she hopes to create curious narratives that are structured by a slippery and absurd logic. Often (mis)using visual elements and solutions used in data visualization, educative contexts and measuring instruments.
Lately she has been captivated by the egg and its relation to present-day people.
She wants to introduce the egg-shaped wheel as an alternative to the disk-shaped wheel that we consider standard. Instead of a wheel that serves the world, this egg-shaped evolution suggests that the world will have to adapt to the wheel.
