Aurore Pélisson graduated from the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, France in 2009, specializing in textile design. Upon graduation, Aurore moved to London, where she worked on several high-profile artistic collaborations, including an installation for the Hackney Wicked Festival of contemporary art.

In 2011, she returned to her birthplace in Provence of Avignon. She was asked to exhibit her large format silk textiles in the historic Eglise du Couvent des Celestins at the Parcours de l’Art in 2013. The Celestine Church is located in Corps-Saints Square and was constructed under the orders of Clement VII in 1389. In parallel, she also launched her own brand, HAPE, with the mission of designing and creating unique textile pieces of art working with natural methods, dyes and materials.


Aurore’s World

“I explore the relations between man and nature, through sight and touch.

How to transcribe the deep sensations of the living: to dive into the organic matter.

I want to give to feel the osmosis of the human stakeholder of the environment, the correlations between human flesh, vegetable, mineral …

Through textile experiments, by choices of natural matter, I walk with the vegetable colors in the fiber.

Often my journeys begin with drawings of observations of natures pieces that can be innocuous or grandiose. My eyes are then fixed on the real and my hand becomes a channel of sensation making the lines of my own vision. It is by very slow gestures and meticulous observation of the elements that the basis of my work appears.

This look comes to blend into matter itself.

Subsequently the textile material comes into play and becomes both my medium and my medium.

Silk-screen printing being my printer, everything becomes possible between my frame and the fabric.”


Mon Univers

“J’ explore  les relations homme/nature, au travers de la vue et du touché.

Comment retranscrire les sensations profondes du vivant : plonger dans la matière organique.

J’ai envie de donner à sentir l’osmose de l’humain parti prenante de  l’environnement, les corrélations entre la chair humaine, végétale, minérale…

Au travers d’expérimentations textile, par des choix de matière naturelles, je me promène avec les couleurs végétales dans la fibre.

Souvent mes cheminements commencent par des dessins d’observations de pièces de natures qui peuvent être anodine ou grandiose. Mes yeux sont alors fixés sur le réel et ma main devient un canal de sensation rendant les lignes de ma propre vision. C’est par des gestes très lents et l’observation minutieuse des éléments qu’apparaît la base de mon travail.

Ce regard vient se fondre dans la matière elle même.

Par la suite la matière textile entre en jeu et devient à la fois mon support et mon médium. La sérigraphie étant mon imprimante, tout devient possible entre mon cadre et le tissus.”


We will feature one of Aurore’s couture silk tunique pieces in our new V1: Mediterranean Gold: Climb Aboard curation, our latest subscription featuring a resort wear inspired collection, along with her exclusively created home textiles available in our V9: Autumn Impressions – Luxe Provence Blush Subscription.
