Art Paris 2021, from September 9 to September 12, takes place this year in the new Grand Palais Éphémère on the Champ de Mars in front of the Eiffel Tower, and this until the rehabilitation of the old Grand Palais.
We are exhibited by our gallery from Zurich, Galerie La Ligne, on booth E11.
Galerie La Ligne was our first gallery and has represented us since 2015. This will be our 6th Art Paris together.
Artworks in order of appearance :
UTRECHT / 2020 / Light sculpture / 85x85x10 cm
The drawing of this artwork is a pattern composed of an endless line, engraved on a mirror, then backlit by colored LEDs. The volume is created by the reflections of light between 2 mirrors.
The name of the artwork, Utrecht, is an anagram of Truchet, as a tribute to the research on combinatorial paving of geometrical patterns of Sebastien Truchet, a French inventor and mathematician of the late 17th century, under the reign of Louis XIV.
ETHER /2020/ pigments on plexiglas, white LED 6500K, aluminum / 80x80x6 cm
Created from a 3D digital model, a pentagonal volume is generated by a construction of multiple spheres, formed by the size progressions of bicolor gray and white rectangles.
The perspective and feeling of volume are intensified by the interaction between the LED light and the pigments of varying densities on plexiglas.
This artwork is named Ether, inspired by the concept of the quintessence of the Greek philosophers that they described as the 5th element, and the research of the pre-relativist physicists in the late 19th century on the wave-nature of light and its propagation in the universe.
BLUE LINES / 2020 / pigments on plexiglas, white LED 6500K, aluminum / 72x72x6 cm
SIERPINSKI’S PYRAMID / 2020 / pigments on plexiglas, white LED 3000K, aluminum / 72x72x6
Both artworks are inspired by the research of Wacław Sierpiński, a 20th-century Polish mathematician known for his contributions to the theory of sets, number theory, function theory, and topology.
Sierpiński's triangle or pyramid is a fractal constructed from an equilateral triangle, from which the triangle constructed from the middle of the 3 sides is removed to then obtain 3 new triangles to which the process is reapplied and repeats this construction ad infinitum.
