    1989 - Lives and works in Marseille

    Amandine Guruceaga initiates a protean set of works, moving from sculpture to installation, from precious object to project dedicated to public space.
    Her work explores the physical boundaries of matter - me- tal, fabric, skin - and plays with the boundaries between art and craft, organic and technical. Her works question the socio-economic history of materials and reveal the artist’s fascination with the migration of forms and patterns and the boundary between painting and sculpture.
