Catalogue Note

Franz West était un artiste Autrichien né en 1947, il est décédé en 2012. Tels des assemblages, Passtücke (morceaux soudés), son mobilier nous invite à éprouver ses sculptures par le contact de notre corps. Prendre conscience et redécouvrir son corps telle était la grande préoccupation de cet artiste. Oeuvre autonome ou objets utilitaires, Franz West déplace les frontières et se plaît à en détourner les normes. Ses chaises sont selon sa propre expression des "adaptateurs entre l'art et la vie".

Franz West was an Austrian artist born in 1947 and who died in 2012. His furniture, such as assemblages, Passtücke (Adaptives), invite us to experience his sculptures through our body. Body awareness and consciousness were the main concern of the artist. Franz West enjoyed blurring the boundaries between art and utilitarian objects. He described his chairs as 'adapters between art and life'.
