Catherine Wilkening

Born in 1963 - France


Catherine Wilkening is an French actress played in more than 60 movies and who started sculpture in 2003, after an encounter on a film-shooting which acted like a click and pushed her to fulfil a project that she was nurturing for long time. Since then, she enjoyed several exhibitions in Paris, and recently two in Asia, in Bangkok and in Singapore.

Her delicate porcelain sculptures are expressing a typical and strong Parisian touch. "Porcelain is requesting a lot of patience and love. The result is very soft and often playful', says the artist. "My hands literary love sculpting flowers that can express many things: feminist, gentleness, romanticism. Sometimes, I am adding in between the flowers glamorous detail of the human body, for catching the audience's eyes and nourishing imagination. It is a way of playing with the human body, which becomes almost a consenting object. My inspirations are very diverse: Bacon, Hans Bellmer, Berlin de Bruyckere, Auguste Rodin, The Divine Comedy of Dante, the Specola museum in Florence and the Natural History Museum in Paris".
