“Art is man’s futile dream of a human silence ; it is the silence of our dreams. And sculptures are the bones of those dreams.”
The works presented offer a reflection on the notion of surface and modelled depth. They show spaces, angles and shapes, brought to life through a process of assemblage and the playful use of lines, thus constructing or revealing a horizon. It’s a constant reorganisation of the given materials, whether they origin from a certain place, from the materials used, or else from a mental space. Worked and imagined, the material opens up different layers of depth, whether they pertain to the visible, the sensual or the production of meaning.
Hence, the artist’s gesture is that of gradually placing the viewer into that unpredictable niche between the abstract and the concrete, layer by layer, in order to rediscover the “silence of our dreams” at the heart of reality itself.
