Mathilde Heu is an emerging Swiss/French artist based in London, whose multi-faceted practice encompasses drawing and writing, as well as sound and sculptural elements.
Alongside her practice, she carries out critical and analytical research which examines the forms of the 'infrathin': small occurrences in our daily lives and surroundings.
Interested in the ambiguity between micro and macro-worlds, she often confronts the viewer with large installations. These act as crossing points which question our own proportions and place in the world through their undetermined scale.
In her most recent works, she explores 'high density' points, which seem to contain a whole world in themselves. Thus emerges a cluster, a constellation of these multiple 'crossing points'.
