Artist Statement :
My artistic work revolves around two distinct axes : sculpture and photography of these sculptures as testimonies of these ephemeral actions. I’m looking for a minimalist gesture, a spectacular action using pieces of wood that I have and that I make interact with the light in order to try to complete my proposal by finding a balance between the physical side of the object and the cast shadows.
I also like to work on assemblies of objects that I also have there without constraining their own nature too much. The ephemeral is at the heart of my concerns as an artist, the street art nomadism concept too.
Be somewhere, do something, taking it off as it never existed and restart. I’m a shadow, my work is a shadow, without lights noting happen. – Y.L.
