walac. is a Glasgow based creative studio founded by French artist and designer c.a. walac. in 2018.
She received a MFA from ENSAPC (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris Cergy) in 2015 where she studied sculpture and installation and a MFA from University Paris I Pantheon Sorbonne in 2014 where she studied the notions of space and place in contemporary art.
With her background in fine arts, she tries to transcribe something more intangible than function. A feeling, a mood, an atmosphere.
The studio focuses on building stories through shape, materiality, and their relationship to space and people. Taking its inspiration from different realities, such as, metaphysic, surrealism, or brutalism, walac’s pieces are emotional responses making room by reconstructing micro-events mentally formulated from details experience. Their assembly and constellations create new possible spaces and, as progression, can create discursive meanings.
