“Do you see it ? This infinitely blue, in this infinitely ocher ?

Laurine Malengreau creates textile artworks with hands full of silk and wool. Laying these materials on top of each other and giving them a particular strength gives her a primary joy. In turn, she is deeply convinced that art rewards the right and the well.
With you, she builds a dialogue to create a work that is called out, shimmering and loud. A work that speaks to you.
“I work on the floor, barefoot, in my large and bright workshop, creating freely, without limits of gesture or size. Beside me, shades of color pile up on the floor…”
Her stages of life in numerous countries, her learning close to Masters of Art throughout her childhood, and her emotional attachment to luxurious materials led her to create exclusive collections, inspired by stretched silks on walls and ceilings of great dwellings from the Age of Enlightenment.
Through her original creations, she continues in an innovative and contemporary way the great tradition of wall hangings, for exceptional spaces.
“Inheritor of this traditional and contemporary know-how, I create by hand all steps of creation and production of my textiles.”
The word “nuno”, of Japanese origin, signifies tissue. The Nuno Silk technique intimately blends natural wool and silk to create a non-woven fabric, all in lightness and transparency . It has its roots in the millennial process of felting from Central Asia. Its current version is a little-known area of expertise of the felt family, whose interlacing of fibers has been refined in Australia in the last part of the twentieth century.
