Sylvain Larrière

Neuilly-Sur-Seine, France, 1962
One constant feature of Sylvain Larrière’s sculpture is that they open, thus developing another dimension in space and unveiling a universe until now hidden from the eyes.

Having much worked in metal, he has for some years recently experiences the use of glass in different forms: magnifying lenses, glass tubes, Fresnel lenses, curved glass, stained glass, drops of optic fiber… all materials that play freely with transparency and reflection.
Sylvain Larrière is a box maker, a genius wizard. At the same time designer, lighting designer and mechanic, he encloses his worlds in sober sculptures with geometric shapes.
Open the door: everything starts to move! Colored discs, rods, glass tubes, heavy pieces of metal… Everything comes to life with discreet clicks.
The artist assembles his astonishing pieces in his workshop in Côtes-d'Armor.
