Cotton, smoke, powder, frost, cotton candy, plants... these are the materials that Isabelle Chapuis reinterprets in her photographic work.
In constant search for organic metamorphoses, emotion is the engine of Isabelle Chapuis' creative approach and the human being is at the heart of her work.
After having graduated in 2005 from ESAG-Penninghen, with a distinction in graphic design, Isabelle Chapuis spent several years abroad, where she was drawing inspiration from other realities. Back in Paris she won several awards that made her known to the public such as Picto Prize of young fashion photography in 2010 and La Bourse du Talent Mode in 2012. Her work is regularly exhibited in galleries and institutions such as the French National Library, The Perfume museum in Paris, the Bettina Gallery in Paris, Adhémar Art Center Castle in Montélimar, Snap Space in Florida, and Paris 1839 Gallery in Hong Kong. Recently she has been exhibiting the Dandelion series, realised in collaboration with botanical artist Duy Anh Nhan Duc within the context of the Sino-French month dedicated to environment, and established in five cities in China.

Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation - a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.
