Morgane Baroghel Crucq

Morgane Baroghel-Crucq, metal weaver and textile designer

Biography

Morgane Baroghel-Crucq was trained in textile techniques at the Textile Department of ENSCI (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle) in Paris.

Driven by a desire to make her textiles with her own hands, she created her weaving workshop in 2014.

Her approach is one of experimentation. She explores the textile possibilities of non-textile materials, always guided by her main source of inspiration, light.

Morgane Baroghel-Crucq quickly turned to the metal material, each of whose properties she considers a textile response: its pure and cold shine, its changes in aesthetics according to its degree of oxidation, its possibility of shaping, etc.

Morgane Baroghel-Crucq's weaving work has been supported by the Banque Populaire Corporate Foundation since 2018 and was awarded the Prix de la Jeune Création des Métiers d'art, organized by Atelier d'Art de France in 2015.

In 2019, she is part of the Académie des Savoir Faire, a program of the Fondation d'entreprise Hermès allowing her to position herself among other textile actors and to transmit her vision as a textile artisan.

Exhibition Metallica Ulysse Lacoste / Morgane Baroghel-Crucq, Mayaro 2020

Exposition at Mayaro Gallery

Metallica, dialogue around metal, February-March 2020

Without going so far as to clash, this exhibition could have been called confrontation.

For the two approaches of the artists whose works are presented at Mayaro are radically different, even though they share a common thread: metal.

Morgane Baroghel Crucq is a textile designer. She has chosen metal as her ideal, for its ability to conduct light and capture the changing reflections of the atmosphere. Her work is an invitation to contemplation, her creations, both eventful and orderly, are like a mental landscape. One loses oneself in the thread of a chosen sinuosity, to arrive at a state of harmony.

For a long time, Ulysse Lacoste hesitated between arts and sciences. One day, in the workshop metal Olivier de Serres metal workshop, he understood that the technique of copperware would allow him to link the two.

Thus the metal becomes his medium, which allows him to explore the interaction man/materials,dynamics/forms. His work is a physical manifestation that reveals mathematical thought.

Medium or ideal, the metal has this in common for the two artists that it is a material of expression of predilection, chosen for its physical properties, its way of printing the gestures of the hand and the body.
