The dialogue between people and place is something Chloe Gatrell explores by using organic and architecturally-related materials. The mundane movements made by the human body in day-to-day life become part of a conversation within the fixed forms of architecture, meaning that these social communications become part of her practice.
The tool of making within Gatrell’s work become a resemblance of the synergy between people and places. The artist manipulates industrial material and process within these works to create movements experienced in and around architecture. The concept of the work is activated when viewers become aware of their navigations around the fragile and durable forms, therefore providing a self-awareness of movement and a familiar relationship within a different context.
