Intro
Marie-Charlotte Poirier, living in Villebon-sur-Yvette, France, completed a Jeweler Designer course with distinction through AFEDAP (Paris, France), oriented in contemporary jewellery. In parallel, she obtained her professional certificate (Certificat d’Apprentissage Professional or CAP) in the "Arts and Techniques of the Jewellery".
 
While her training was mainly oriented on jewellery, she now leaves her comfort zone to express herself through larger pieces, between contemporary jewelry and wearable art, while questioning the true definition of jewelry, portability, experimenting with matter, and broadening the artistic proposal by incorporating into each collection a text that she has written.
 
Many projects are still in progress; you can discover the first ones like "Spem", on the mourning of health, "Hystrix", dealing with violence against women, or "Klex", on the notion of madness.

Statement

I observe the jewel through the lens of the nurse I used to be before approaching the world of jewellery. My creations, in between art objects and jewels, are often articulated around the themes of health, disease, emotions and experiences. Thus, I extend this concept to the scenography of my pieces and the choice of my models.
Therefore, my aim is to materialize the emotions and feelings that the healer may have difficultly
externalising to his patients, from fear to anger, from pain to sadness, from doubt to hope.
 
My art compensates for the few moments we can obtain at the hospital for medical care based on a relationship with the patient. I never felt so close to my patients than through my creations, which are a relief from past frustration: both mine and the patients.
My pieces are the reflection of all these injured bodies and hearts, and there is, in every one of them, always a fragment of their personal history, of their soul.
Contemporary art therapist, I express myself to cover wounds, mine, theirs, and yours.
 
My scientific approach encourages me to experiment even more and to use all types of materials: from metal to lichen, through epic porcine spines, plastic or ferrofluid. Medical artist or poetic surgeon, I metaphorically dissect the disease. The wounded body becomes my canvas, the materials my plaster.
