Jean-Marie Appriou

Jean-Marie Appriou develops a reflection on sculpture by exploring materials such as  aluminium, glass, bronze and clay in unconventional processes.  
From his experiments of an alchemical nature emerge human, animal and plant figures  which meet and complement each other, giving rise to different scenarios. This fantastic  and marvellous universe draws on a variety of inspirations, from Egyptian mythology to  Pre-Raphaelite painting, from science fiction literature to cinema and comics.  
His work has been exhibited at Lafayette Anticipations, Paris, the Consortium Museum in  Dijon, Central Park in New York at the invitation of the Public Art Fund, the Lyon Biennial,  the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, the MAMVP, Paris, the  Château de Versailles, the David Roberts Art Foundation, London, the Astrup Fearnley  Museet, Oslo, the Vienna Biennial, as well as in the galleries of Jan Kaps, Cologne, Eva Presenhuber, Zurich; C L E A R I N G, New York and Brussels, and Massimo de Carlo, Milan.
