Paper Days - Pascale Malilo
A good rule for Sunday afternoons? Be cultural! That's why we urge you to visit À St Médard. This Brussels based Complex Center of Art is having a weekend dedicated to paper and those who work it. After the I Love Belgium team popped in yesterday, we we're impressed with the intricate scissor work and wanted to share the love. We've picked out our favourite Belgian artists who's work is on show.
That person is Pascale Malilo. After her interior architecture studies, Pascale started working in several architecture offices. Wanting to change her life ,she decided to study graphic design and starts working in world of graphics for almost twenty years. Since 2000, she has been drawing a series of objects reminiscing decorative arts, most of the times in an unconventional situations creating a certain poetical feel.
Since 2007 , she's realising a series of "drawings" evoking the inventory of a natural science museum. She does this with the help of the "picotage" technique. These drawings are obtained by punching out little wholes with a fine needle, creating outlines and patterns. Others are created with the help of glue, gold leaf, nail polish or walnut stain. Yes, instant love guaranteed! So move your ass before it's gone.
