Jean-Marie Appriou

Born 1986 in Brest (France),
lives and works in Paris (France)

Jean-Marie Appriou appropriates traditional sculpture techniques to repurpose them and expand their potential. His experiments with materials such as aluminium, glass and bronze yield human, animal and plant figures that interact and complement one another, giving rise to various scenarios. His project for the Biennale is a monumental cast-aluminium installation of brambles spreading into space. This proliferating piece will help create a romantic fallow landscape that contrasts with its mechanical and industrial surroundings.
