Sara Domenach is a painter ; Marine Class, a sculptor. The artists met during their studies at the Fine Arts School in Paris and rapidly found correlations in their work : volume and its pictorial representation through aspects associated with vegetation. Their work together explores the potentials of space and develops the capacity to rebuild it as an environmental entity. The first collaboration in March 2008 produced an installation : Mise en Bouche (Tasting). Since then they have persevered in the development of their complementary skills. Last November, Tapis volant et Farioboules (Flying carpet and nonsense) came to light. Today they are finalising the model for their future installation that they will show in September 2009 : Le Pavillon à 7 brèches (The pavilion with 7 breaches). This work will mark the between the real and the magic by drawing from the intra-extra contrast between the substrate and its structure. The representation of a space, enclosed by definition, a pavilion, will be open to free circulation of air with its seven apertures, a reference to the mythology of Skopje ; paintings of plants will work their way into the interior and an overflowing sculpture will burst out of the ceiling. The unique imaginary plants will here act as a filter whereas the central sculpture appears as a growth from the roof developing towards the interior.
