Chloé Arrouy’s (France, 1993) art practice deals with the concepts of torture and magic in the popular European Medieval culture, which she uses as tools to investigate – formally and idiosyncratically – existence, sexuality and culture. Her material of choice is metal, which she rusts, burns and overworks to create ominous and fascinating objects, that often recall ritual or torture tools. She often juxtaposes her sculptures to material-based abstract paintings, installatively expanding the language of her mysterious works in metal. Arrouy holds a MFA from ERG in Brussels and has exhibited (among others) at Alice Gallery (Brussels, 2019), Jakob Kroon Gallery (Worthing, 2019) and at Biennale de Belgique (Gand, 2019). Arrouy lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.
