The balancing game of bronze
Christine Guillemin’s fascination for Giacometti is recognisable at first glance. It appears in her slender silhouettes, gushing out of a raw and mineral material. Christine Guillemin is a free artist. Free to experiment. Through various processes and techniques, she gives each of her artworks the space to live according to a singular staging. As for bronze, it remains her one and only material.
Each sculpture, extended to the animal world, results from an in-depth research on an attitude, a movement, a balance within a specific space. Her creations can fall into mobile frames or can be reflected in mirrors.
Her instinctive character also drives her to draw inspiration from nature to design small furniture pieces.
Christine Guillemin was born in Paris in 1959.
She made her first sketches in Villa d’Alésia and trained with Jonathan Hirschsfeld in 1993.
