Cécile Mestelan

Born in Baiona in 1988, Cécile Mestelan attended the Ecole Supérieur d’Art des Rocailles in Biarritz and the Ecole cantonale d’art in Lausanne, where she earned a Master’s degree in visual art. She divides her time between Bidart and Lisbon, where she has her studio.

In this exhibition she is presenting a series of small-scale ceramic sculptures aligned on plinths made of cork, entitled Fétiche (Fetish). Manufactured using molds created by the artist, the statuettes combine organic and geometric forms, reminding the viewer of works by artists such as Brancusi and Miro, but also of the trinkets and lucky charms that often play a role in our daily lives.

Their apparently purposeless nature, reinforced by the contrast between the hardness of the ceramic material from which they are made and the softness of the cork plinths on which they are placed, invites us to question our relationship with the objects that surround us.
