Trained at the line and drawing, Sophie Dulaurent created from urban architecture forms. As a premise for a link between clothing and housing she develops an idea codified in old times when Vitruve was analysing the relations between architecture and human body.
This idea, nourished by careful observations of the built space, leads the artist to focus her work around the draped dress.
In a continuous search, Sophie Dulaurent starts from a shot of a fragment of city, house, street, or passage. From that shot emerges a form — a flat plot of patronage for a dress. At this stage the volume of the dress remains unknown; it will appear progressively once the piece of fabric is cut and placed on the body
