Graduated in biology, ethno-anthropology as well as from the National School of Fine Arts of Marseille, Aurélia Rocher is sensitive to the beauty, the fragility and the complexity of nature. She is passionate about the plant and marine world and even more about micro-organisms. Fascinated by the biodiversity of which the human being himself is made, the artist is inspired for her creations by mitochondria, Golji’s apparatus or anemochorous seeds – which are dispersed by the wind. It is all this reflection that the committed artist gives to see today in his work.
In Charleval, Aurélia Rocher has taken over one of the towers of the castle and thought the space as an installation. The artist deploys her full range of talents. Painting, drawing, ceramic sculptures respond to each other and come to inhabit this soothing place, so imposing from the outside and yet so human. Harmony that his father, Daniel Rocher, was able to create.
