Claire NicoletCLAIRE NICOLET

IS

A

FRENCH

ARTIST.

She lives and works in PARIS. She mainly practices DRAWING, from black and white COMICS to large formats made with colour PENCILS. She sometimes explores other media like wooden sculpture or collections of accumulated objects.

She walks in the street every day keeping her eyes OPEN, waiting for  new discoveries, something EXTRAORDINARY she could meet on her way.

She draws things, spaces, shapes and ideas she collects, representing her MENTAL LANDSCAPES.

DRAWING is her playground as the city is her PLAYGROUND.

Joy and PERPETUAL MOVEMENT: her motor.

Below is some of her work:

CHARLIE TUESDAY GATES
is
an  
ARTIST
with a reputation for unique and challenging SCULPTURE, VIDEO & PERFORMANCE ART that confronts, questions and challenges issues of morality, ethics and the very nature of CONTROVERSY itself. 
 
Although she doesn’t classify HERSELF as such, she has been listed as one of the 
U.K’s TOP TAXIDERMISTS, instrumental in bringing the new wave of TAXIDERMY into the mainstream. 
Her pioneering series ‘D.I.Y Taxidermy LIVE!’ series embraced an entirely new medium of WORKSHOPS and live demonstrations that simply didn’t EXIST before. Evolving from a tongue-in-cheek demonstration in 2009, this BIZARRE mix of performance, improvisation, STORYTELLING, VIDEO, PUPPETRY became a hugely popular and sell out show. 
Her video work uses the  medium of ‘ANIMALATION’, where Gates animates and DISTORTS  dead characters, REAL animals are MANIPULATED by hand to perform, sing and dance. 
 
Gates went on to create ‘SING FOR YOUR LIFE’ a multi AWARD WINNING musical staring DEAD animal puppets. A REVOLUTION in musical theatre confronting the audience with the UNCOMFORTABLE truth of how we purport to CARE about our fellow species, yet are BLINDED and driven to cruelty by NARCISSM and COMMODITY.  Sing For Your Life is littered with BLUNT & CRASS puns along with SARDONIC nods to the canon, processes and practices that mock popular culture, tradition and the CULT OF CELEBRITY…

Gates FASHION brand MIND LIKE MAGPIE has had pieces commissioned for BEYONCE and ELTON JOHN and seen on the holy head of CARA DELEVIGNE.

Her artwork has been exhibited in MUSEUM ARNHEM, the cover of DESIGN WEEK, inside THE HUFFINGTON POST,  TIME OUT, THE INDEPENDENT, NOTION, CLASH, MIX MAG, BIZARRE MAGAZINE, DAZED AND CONFUSED & VICE. She has worked with DIESEL, BBC FILM, FILM LONDON, FUTURE CINEMA, LOST LECTURES and many more.
 
Born in DORSET, Gates studied sculpture at CAMBERWELL COLLEGE OF ART. She now lives and works in LONDON.
