Diane de Kergal ()
A self-taught interior architect and designer, Diane de Kergal shapes her worlds like a tightrope walker, in the permanent search for a balance between pure lines and raw materials. Resolutely minimalist, she follows her instinct, taming light with her flexible forms. Inspired by her travels, she started to draw cocoons, only to to discover silkworms in the Cévennes. Today, she entrusts them with her casts and they weave their silk cocoons around her sculptures. All she has to do then is flood the resulting artworks with light. A true dialogue between woman and nature.
Her work is increasingly recognised both in France and internationally, and in 2021, her light sculpture 'Emergence II' joined the French government's Mobilier National collection.
