 Patrice Yourdon

Patrice Yourdon is a sculptor living and working in New York. Her sculpture combines the use of sewn fabric and metal hardware: thousands of screws put into a mesh support describe objects that are normally soft in appearance: girl’s dresses, baby clothes, pillows and women’s fashion. Each piece challenges the viewer’s ability to trust what they see and know about the familiar objects. This work also examines the relationship of delicacy to strength as well as invoking aspects of armor, the invincibility of metal, the spiritual strength of ancient armor.
