Marseille Art and Soap

Publié le May 15, 2024

Marseille soap in all its forms!

We are delighted to present the work of Frédérique Nalbandian , with whom we have been collaborating for several years. The artist explores the very essence of the complexity of the living world and the human body through sculptures made in Marseille soap. Its appeal for soap lies in its metamorphosis over time, its ability to oscillate between solidity and fluidity , between foam and effervescence . Soap, a hydrophilic material, lends itself perfectly to all the changes desired by the artist. In her experimental explorations, she discovers a singular beauty in this material, a captivating and enigmatic sensuality resembling marble.

Between Fer à Cheval and the artistic talent of Frédérique Nalbandian , a beautiful story of poetry was woven, carried by a common vision: that where the soap is not perfect but very much alive.

To find the soap sculptures of Frédérique Nalbandian , we invite you to discover her works at her exhibition “Renversement” at the “la Place aux Arts” event from May 31 to September 15, 2024 in Fougères.
