Lives and works in Paris. Born in Lyon.
The work of Isabelle Plat, whether intended for public or private space, is always based on the specificities of its exhibition environment, from an ecological angle. She builds a work that often transforms people into potential users, a concept that she defines as usable sculpture.
Since 2006, presented in various exhibitions, Isabelle Plat has explored the organic material of hair. She makes sculptures from “objects of belonging”, which belonged to a person. By a metaphorical but nevertheless physical confrontation of a singular body with the space it invests, Isabelle Plat thus highlights the cultural, ecological and even political challenges of our society.
