les presses du réel
Vincent Lamouroux -
First monograph: an overview of Lamouroux's wide range of practices (installations, sculptures, works on paper, photos, videos...) and a retrospective of his large architectural installations conceived for the spaces of the Palais de Tokyo, Mamco, Centre Prompidou, etc., with two essays (including an original work by Marcelline Delbecq, comprising six texts specifically created for the book) and a conversation with the artist.
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 this approach. 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.
