About The Artwork

I am inspired by the power that can emanate from a mere name, even if just marked on a paper bag. Where does this power come from? Can it be abolished, or does it resist? Original Chanel paperbag + crocheted cotton net.

Sophie Inard is a French fiber artist, living and working in Paris, who uses the technique of crochet to wrap objects and symbols of power. Through her work, she questions the strength of codes and stereotypes, developing a universe where opposites coexist and converse. The codes she challenges are not only those related to gender but also to communities, religions, generations... Her work reflects an artistic commitment through a unique aesthetic that turns its back on conventional ideas and reveals the beauty that arises from unexpected dialogues. Rugby balls, baseball bats, firearms, hockey helmets... all these symbols that contribute to the construction of an image of power are decontextualized by the artist to make them quirky and poetic, emanating a new force. The instruments she chooses are wrapped in crochet mesh: a gentle and ancestral craft, decidedly manual. A technique that defies the technological trend of our era and recalls a more measured temporality, against the current of our accelerated pace of life. The "granny square," a recurring pattern in her works, is a tribute to this traditional process, where the making and assembling of squares literally weave connections between the past and the present. "Art does not reproduce the visible; it makes visible." Paul Klee
