Morgan Courtois

Born 1988 in Abbeville (France),
lives and works in Paris (France)

Inspired by botany and architecture, Morgan Courtois’s works convey a fluctuating world in the form of plaster or ceramic sculptures of languid naked bodies, panels evoking exhalations of smoke, and fragrant plaster-and-resin vases. For the Biennale, he is conceiving a large landscape composed of sculptures in plaster, resin, ceramic and ironwork, primarily inspired by classical nude poses. Subject to artificial climate phenomena, the bodies – reclining, seated, standing, or leaning against natural or architectural elements – depict fragments of a timeless scene that blends styles and eras.

With the kind collaboration of the Museum of Ancient Art Castings (MuMo)
