The creative process of Vincent Lamouroux's recent works.
"Trajectories" takes a look at the latest projects of the artist.
Between the document and the artist's book, and like his work, this sensible and radical book is a course in the time and space of the artist's production.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition "Néguentropie" proposed by Vincent Lamouroux at Maubuisson Abbey, France, from July to November 2012.
Born 1974, Vincent Lamouroux lives and works in Paris an New York. Space is simultaneously the medium, the
framework and the matrix for his
works, often site-specific creations
—“sculpture places” the artist calls them—
in which air itself can become a material in
its own right. These pieces are the visible
expression of his thinking about space while
also exploring the notion of instability. His
series of undulating floors, with their
multiple changes of level, is emblematic of
The issues of movement and circulation are
central to his creations, whether these
involve sculpture in space or the
visitor in an environment. He draws liberally on
architectural references, but also on images
linked to the latest ideas in science-fiction,
town planning and technological research.
