Audrey Cottin (b. 1984,Saint-Mandé, France) lives in Brussels, Belgium. Inspired by Robert Filliou’s belief that “everybody is perfect”, Cottin has been searching for a perfect collaboration with people she encounters. Cottin’s work for Liverpool Biennial 2016 aims to “to uncover the city’s unconscious”. At Cains Brewery, visitors are invited to create objects, figures and landscapes with dough, whilst Liverpool-based illustrator and designer Simon Turner records the sessions. Cottin’s work harks back to a therapeutic method inspired by Swiss psychologist and philosopher Carl Jung and his theories on the psyche.
