Interior architect and designer, self-taught, Diane de Kergal has been carrying out residential projects for 15 years for numerous personalities in Paris and abroad.
Resolutely minimalist, she shapes her worlds as a tightrope walker, In the permanent search for a balance between pure lines and raw materials. She follows her instinct, tries to tame the light through flexible forms. Inspired by her travels, she starts drawing cocoons ... to discover in the Cévennes a breeding of silkworms virtuoso in the matter! She entrusts them with her casts, so that they weave their silk cocoons as close as possible to her sculptures. All she has to do then is to flood them with light.
A dialogue is born between a woman and nature.
In 2021, her light sculpture "Emergence II" has joined the French government's Mobilier National collections.
