Sarah Caillard create a sculptural universe that brings together different characters with varied aesthetics. These multiple attempts at figurative representation are not divisible from one another, but complement each other to evoke the complexity and plurality of being, like the different states and stages of matter, the living body and its psychic range. I use different materials and techniques, making it possible to give a different texture, weight and density to each figure. The sculpture becomes, like the body, the surface layer of being. "I am inspired by objects, symbols or gestures that have populated the collective imagination of time, those that we find in mythology, esotericism, literature, cinema, plastic art, fashion, cartoon, reality TV, social networks, tales, legends, news items etc ... defining in this a symbolic invariance. It is about approaching the image with a triple gaze: real, symbolic and fantasmagorical thus allowing several levels of readings of the same “object”. These differences in perceptions and positions inscribes us in a fictious relationship in which we become the infinite subject of interpretations and projections. These differences or rather superimpositions (of look, of interpretations ...) construct a narrative. It is these different states of being in the world that I like to try to build." These sculptures are exhibited in cinematographic staging atmosphere. Each exhibition is thought of as a film (with an echoing poster) bringing the viewer into a frozen time, as if he had access to a memory or to a bygone world, becoming a witness or voyeur of an intimate place, an atmosphere where these sculptures live.
