about


Clémentine Vaultier is a french artist based in Brussels (b.1991). She dives into various media, sources, languages and fields of knowledge to weave a network of often collaborative practices. Through observation of (art) history and iconography, architecture, ceramics, geology or food preparation, through drawings, photos, scans or transcripts of discussions, she collects, creates and organises in porosity with others material, narratives and events, discussions around objects and research. 

Passionate about how people lived, live and can live together and how knowledge production and aesthetical gestures can be parts of those dynamics, she is interested in anything social, ritualistic, empowering, experimental and fun.

Her  subjects of interest are often object-based, taken as material witnesses to trigger the unfolding of stories. She explores social and ritualistic realms, through dynamics of fluidity, transmission, commoning, empathy, care, hospitality... 

Clémentine Vaultier is an artist associate at Jubilee - platform for artistic research, and a member of Becraft, an association for and by belgian art and crafts practioners.

She is part of the Ceramics department pedagogical team of La Cambre national school of arts (Brussels) where she accompanies the master students through their thesis exercise and towards their graduation show.

She graduated from the master Autonomous Design at KASK, (2019 Gent) where she received the “Bruynseraede - De Witte honor prize” for her research on Warmth, a central topic she looked at as a physical as well as a social phenomenon.

She also graduated from La Cambre (2017 Brussels) in Ceramics and Central Saint Martins (2011 London) in Fine Arts - contextual practice.
