Chair by Isabelle Pellouin



In Inuit mythology, Sedna is the goddess of the sea. She is venerated, because she provides people with the food they need to survive. During their trance, shamans use a big comb to brush Sedna’s long hair and soothe her anger.
According to the legend, Sedna had no hands to brush her hair and gets angry because she can’t take dirt off her hair. Men’s stupidity and ill-will with animals are represented by stain progressively piling up in Sedna’s hair. She gets upset and retains sea animals next to her. So, people are in lack of food. It is essential to respect Nature and women. For shamans, it is also fundamental to enter a trance and smooth Sedna’s anger...

"As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been drawing, painting, doing DIY...with paper, wood or fabrics. I’ve built my own world with all that.
During my artistic studies at the École Régionale de Caen, I’ve explored several creation and printing techniques. After my studies, I've created my own publishing house: "Les Petites Manies". I develop a series production of literary objects, generally not exceeding 50 copies.
Literature, poetry are a source of inspiration during my creation process. Screen printing is a technique I use to publish my works, but also to conceive and print the objects I usually exhibit with “L’Encrage” in Caen and elsewhere.
I produce just a few unique objects. I love series: it’s less frustrating than producing unique objects and I can share much more. By the way, I’d like to build steps close to the pier of Deauville.”
