Activity Assise 8


Artistic approach

To explore the space with the line, may it be real or virtual, that is the challenge the artist has given himself through the works presented. The wire, as well as the line, allow for multiple associations, and the choice of colour increases them again. The categories meet : drawing in space becomes sculpture. Contemporary art abounds with these crossings of disciplines, which introduce new reflections and ways of doing things. Is the void in sculpture not as important as the volume ? Isn’t drawing in itself embroidery ?
