The casting and the umbrella | Old Catholic Presbytery


François Mathieu

"My practice as a sculptor highlights the matter, presence and form, understood as being the founders of the work itself. Thus, I am looking for what happens to the form once it deploys itselg in a specific matter or scale rather than another. All this is possible, by bringing up constructive systems, adapted or not, which are not derived from calulations, but mainly through experimentation and play. Whether it's domes, cupolas or other round objects, the sphere is an abstract shape, but always recognizable"
