Caroline Mesquita’s (b.1989 in Brest, France, lives and works in Paris) sculptural practice intertwines the materiality of her altered, oxidized, and painted copper and brass sheets with theatrical playfulness.
For the exhibition The Ballad at Foundation d’entreprise Ricard, Mesquita produced a series of sculpted characters dancing, loving, and facing both each other and the viewer as their presence blurs the line between fiction and reality, humans and mannequins. It is a procession, a form of public celebration, a moment of communion. In the videos featured in the exhibition, Mesquita appears alongside her sculptures and the interaction she creates pushes the limits and reinvents ways of living together.
