Collages and mixed media on fabric | 2020
Fanny Allié’s textile and mixed media works are inspired by overlooked and lost elements of everyday life. Allié is interested in the spaces we inhabit, specifically the body—the first place that contains us. Her intricate and layered works weave together previously discarded materials, from torn garments to small found objects. Each composition gives a new home to these items that had once been left behind. In turn, the works reflect themes of memory and passage, and the discarded, ephemeral, and brittle narratives that link us together.

Featured in Hyperallergic, New York Times, and New York Magazine, Fanny Allié's mixed-media works incoporate sewing, texture, drawing and painting. Her work considers the human body from the lens of gesture and investigates how bodily forms operate when fragmented.
