FILM Misericordia – matali crasset x centre Pompidou x Misericordia
Directed and shot by Aurelyen
Filmed in Paris – 2011
Born July 28th 1965 in Châlons-en-Champagne (France), Matali Crasset trained as an industrial designer. In the spirit of one of her best-known objects, the roll-up guest bed Quand Jim monte à Paris (When Jim comes to Paris), she uses her own methodology, questioning the things we take for granted in our everyday life in order to break free and experiment.In this way she develops new typologies based on principles such as multiple modularity, suitability, flexibility and network. Her work, which began to be recognised in the 1990s as a rejection of pure form, is conceived as a quest in progress, built from hypotheses rather than from principles.She works in a variety of disciplines, from handicrafts to electronic music, from textile industry to fair trade. Her works have taken her into unexpected areas, from stage design to furniture trade, from graphic design to interior architecture.
