Biography

Cristin Richard is in the movement of artists whose work is related to the body and identity.  Her work examines the human condition and the fact that the body is physically and mentally determined in this condition. It is thus the window of our relation to the world.  She transcribes her own personal story through impulses to existential questions.

Particularly interested in the manipulation of organic matter, these materials build a dialog of what it feels like to be human. The human being is like nature.  It transforms and regenerates in poetic and unpredictable ways.  In the majority of her work, she reconstructs animal intestines into tangible objects. Playing on the ambiguity, created by the presence of this material, she develops metaphors loaded with complexities.

With the idea of fashion as sculpture, Cristin Richard blurs the line between fine art and fashion.  She believes that fashion allows one to create a second skin.  It provides an escape that is rooted in the truth to one’s own identity.  One can transform themselves into whatever makes them feel good, allowing them to approach society in their own unique way. Through these observations, the artist develops and analyzes the subject of the appearance of one’s self, and also that of one another.
