French artist, Cécile Davidovici (b.1987) started her artistic journey as a filmmaker. After studying in New York City, she wrote and directed movies that have been displayed at festivals throughout the world. Following her mother's death, Davidovici felt a need to replace images and sound with physical, tactile materials. From these intensions and successful discoveries, Davidovici has been able to adapt this new medium to allow herself to anchor her art in the moment. Making the medium of textiles her own, playing with threads in the manner a painter would with paint, she is carving out her very own niche within the world of contemporary Art.
