aurèce vettier is an art project founded in 2019 by Paul Mouginot (b. 1990). This alias, formed using an algorithm, is a metaphor for the desire for a collaborative, open and hybrid approach.
This identity, like all of aurèce vettier’s work, allows for a lot of back and forth between the 'real' space in which it is possible to exist, to draw, paint, sculpt, break, and, erase; and the 'data' space, where it is possible to play with more dimensions than a human can grasp–a gesture analogous to uploading and then downloading an image over and over again on an online platform.
In this virtual space, which may involve AI algorithms or heavy mathematical processing, aurèce vettier explores new forms, which are then deployed as tangible objects, in close connection with many crafts.
The approach is not to consider the machine-generated elements as a set of finished works but rather as raw material, expanding conceptual possibilities and complementing the initial knowledge of art history.
