About works

Paquette’s solo practice revolves around the creation of interfaces and situations that probe the sensitive relationships between body, space and object. The experience of the uncomfortable, the fragile and the ambiguous instigates research on the taming of the social, natural and built environment. This approach, intimately linked to the contexts in which the interventions take place, generates performative activations and installations that combine textiles, objects, photography, drawing, video and writing. In the contexts of presentation, the sculptural devices take the form of extensions of the body (prosthesis, membrane) or of space (surface, habitacle) and are activated during public performances, in situ interventions or collaborations with a participatory audience.
