Apolline Grivelet

ProfessionPlastician

Preserved in a semi-wild state in the south of France for nearly seventeen years, Apolline Grivelet arrived in Paris in an attempt to civilise herself. She entered the Paris School of Fine Art and left a while later with a diploma with honours.
Seduced by the wet exotism of Picardy, Loren Chorley and her decided to go green and join La Menuiserie.
Finally given the chance, there she can develop her breed of demonic chickens, and build her collection of aquariums, black plants and other bio-artistic experiments.
Apolline is represented by the ever-so patient Da End gallery in Paris.

Masahiro Suzuki

Profession(Français) Artiste Plasticien

The poetic nature of Masahiro Suzuki’s work stems from its sensitive relationship to its immediate surroundings. Using a vocabulary of simple gestures (picking up, assembling, setting upright…) and natural materials collected in the forest, or other more hazardous ones found in his studio or around town, he composes totemic sculptures that he lets freely interact with their environment. Combining earthy and plant-like atmospheric colours and at times dense builds (blocks), Masahiro Suzuki’s sculptures seem to contain the ambivalence of a powerful yet harmonious nature. What matters in his volumes is first and foremost the way in which they are painted, and what is most obvious about them is the fragile balance of colours echoing that of the masses. Masahiro Suzuki’s works are infused with a highly personal perception of the world, and appear before us in all their subtle alchemy.

Marion Richomme

ProfessionPlastician

Richomme Marion was born in Tarbes in 1986 and currently lives and works at La Menuiserie. She graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Nantes and has recently exhibited in Paris, Nantes, Strasbourg and Brussels.

Through the use of proper methods of study taken from various fields, she creates, defines and analyses new types of animals, plants and minerals. She studies, tests and reveals the subject matter through engraving, hollowing, pointing, furrowing, wrinkling, streaking, aligning, and repeating… Through the artistic action, she attempts to study the question of how the natural shape forms itself? Of what action is it the result? Her artistic inventory employs real scientific approaches and holds to the standards that apply to them; drawings, photographs and models. She uses the classes and techniques of taxonomic and systematic grouping to invent a new stage of the animal and cellular kingdoms. Biology and its mysteries are revealed through the personal history and exploration of the artist. Her species take the form of a tactile imagination created in porcelain, stoneware or earthenware.
