Paolo Chiasera

Paolo Chiasera (*1978 in Bologna) is fascinated by historical icons, myths and cultural symbolism. He isolates excerpts from cinema, literature and philosophy, which he then uses as pawns within a new story that makes use of the visitor’s ‘collective memory’. For Chiasera, history is a starting point for creating a process of deconstruction and afterward the construction of a shape and he is interested in the possibility of investigating the aesthetic practice of these different modalities, of reaching a shape as a canvas or a sculpture.

” My work is focused on stripping systems down to their essence to better understand the underlying structures and rules that govern how they work. I am interested in lowest common denominators such as pixels or the zeros and ones in binary code. Starting at the beginning, using the simplest forms, I begin to build elements within a framework. The work explores not only on the physical but adds the dimension of time combining both spatial and temporal resolution. The forms move, change, interact and ultimately grow into complex organisms. Inspired by mathematician John Conway’s work with cellular automata and the Game of Life, I have sought to create my own sets of rules. Central to the work is the element of chance. My goal is to create a rich environment in which emergent behavior can occur without a preconceived outcome.” – Leo Villareal

Cyrille André

 photo dsc_0191_zpsa588ded5.jpg

Born in 1972 in Tassin La Demi Lune, lives and works in Grenoble. After scientific studies, Cyrille André attends the Art School of Paris and Grenoble, where he learns sculpture. At the beginning, he sculpts animals which he imagines in four parts: the forequarters, the hindquarters, the body and the neck corresponding to the most important articulations. Here is his bestiary of very large-scale sculptures which parts are hold by tenons and slots, in movement or outspread on the floor in a disarticulated relaxing. Cyrille André’s wood sculptures refuse the classical ideas of beauty : he presents us undefinable animals, men or women without face. Their dimensions share in creating the mystery which wraps these works, they are not heroes and still their monumental size has a holy something. The use of chain saw to create the incisions and the rough surfaces on the finished forms gives vitality and humanism (humanity) to his creations. The represented postures refer to the waiting, to the human isolation. Men are Gardiens (guardians), women, under umbrella or taking a dog for a walk. Animals seem to be here just to emphasize the loneliness of these sculptures, locked in their lead clothes.
