Chloé is an artist and facilitator.

Chloé creates sculpture and installation. Inspired by the relationships we have to our immediate environments and the objects we discard, Chloé re-imagines the way we can view and value materials in our disposable culture. Making her work from salvaged objects, Chloé uses hand processes that combine mixed media and textile techniques, including stitching, wrapping and patchwork. Working in an intuitive and spontaneous way, Chloé combines resourcefulness with creativity to bring playfulness and personality to materials considered to have no worth. She describes her sculptures as ‘social creatures, finding their meaning in the way they are built and in the conversations they trigger.’
