Médium

Soft Sculpture

This soft sculpture was created by dipping shirt pockets in house paint. These objects combine and isolate ideas of repetition and building a domestic life, for example, wearing the same shirt everyday to work or painting the walls of the home. The imperfection of each object questions our sense of individuality and conformity.

Audrey D'Astous
Toronto, ON

Audrey D’Astous is a French Canadian artist, a recent graduate of the Fine Arts and Women’s Studies programs at the University of Waterloo and currently resides in Toronto. Working primarily in soft sculpture using household items, she is most interested in exploring everyday themes in her artwork. Her practice explores the material and intimate properties of used and worn clothing—what they mean, their histories, the references to the body and the personal. A simple gesture of disruption by way of deconstruction and reconstruction to transform the familiar into some-thing unfamiliar. Rendering these objects into useless items allows for new interpretations. The titles help this change in perception by creating a new narrative for the object. These soft sculptures are based on stories left behind, the marks made on other people and environments, the impact of daily living.
