Animation and expression shape Sandra’s ceramic animal and human characters. Her quirky sculptures are unique and can be recognized by their spontaneous gestures and a soupçon of irony and playfulness.

When you visit Galerie Côté Créations, try your hand at making a figurative clay piece of your own with a little guidance by Sandra herself!

Don’t Miss the “Face” at the Confederation Park, Ottawa – Winterlude 2018

FACE is a monumental interactive work—a veritable light show where projections play with portraits, and mix them with bold animation, making use of the facets of the sculpture, which is a perfect medium for catching light. This art installation is an amusing reflection on identity and ego in the digital and social media era. The sculpture becomes the face of everyone.

Face was created by artists Thomas Voillaume and Florian Girardot in collaboration with Guillaume Étienne and co-produced with Illuminart.
