Come and visit us in Hall 9, Stand 56.
Zumtobel. The Light.
From January to March 2020, the Centre Lumière in Paris will host an exhibition of the work of sculptor Stéphane Lasfargue. Exploring the interplay with material and light, this exhibition called “Gourmet Stroll” is an invitation to sensuality and reverie.
Accompanying this installation, several ceramic works and a grandiose plaster sculpture are displayed in the exhibition hall.
DAMIER, organic shape of ceramic tiles in four colours red, yellow, black, gold. Placed on the ground, it follows the relief.
GUIRELANDE, multicoloured ceramic balls suspended in descending order, a way to brighten up the environment all year round.
THOUSANDS of BITS, a series of multicolored ceramic balls. Each ball is a real assembly of small pieces of clay covered with ceramic. Long realization time, high risk of implosion at the time of cooking. Each of them remains fragile despite their mass and compact shape. They fascinate, they attract, but won't they explode and spread their content around them?
OSCAR, a sculpture formed by a stack of 3 blocks of plaster, can be compared to the skeleton we used to have in our classrooms. This one was most often held in standing in a corner, observing us, subject to our stupidest jokes, but allowing everyone to discover a strange and inaccessible world. Like that skeleton from our childhood....
LE PETIT POUCET (series of 10 white plaster balls)
Like the Little Thumb that seeks its way... Small white pebbles, bigger and bigger, have been laid out to find it... Remove one, and you will be lost.
These small plaster sculptures are part of a personal "dictionary". Each sculpture represents a word, an idea, like an alphabet that is built up little by little to obtain a sequence of words that can be associated with each other to compose a message.
QUEEN OF SHEBA An evocation of this mythical kingdom in the south-west of the Arabian Peninsula and of the particular architecture of the houses that protect its inhabitants from the sun's rays while preserving a certain freshness. One day, a queen lived there, and captured the heart of a wise king. l'homme…
MARTIALE RIGIDITY: That day, I lacked inspiration and raw material... After a little trip in the trash, I came out with an empty bottle of whisky, hence this massive and straight parallelepipedal shape of an unfailing authority.
TROIS PETITS SUISSES: This was the time when my children ate astronomical quantities of multicoloured creamy cheese called petits suisses at every meal, most often three by three, opening them simultaneously and then dipping the spoon alternately into each of them...
THE CLOWN: Today the white clown is sad. He has his hat on backwards, but his eye remains sharp, open to the world, ready to catch the slightest thrill...
