It all begins with an impossible situation. Her work moves from a desire to create utopic, often monumental projects, to a longing to build and a longing to destroy. The defining characteristics of her work — which include in situ installations, videos, drawings, photographs - are verticality, a constant connection with the ground: an inverted tree, a hanging chandelier dripping with wax, a lump of soot blackening stairs as it rolls down ... Substance escapes, pours out and invades the space.

Aurore Scotet’s work is to build and film actions. Her creations have a raw quality: videos in the form of sequence shots with very little or no editing at all.

The world exists only by dinsintegrating, it has only consistency in the continual metamorphosis.
