François Morellet — 2013


5 x 3

May 24 — September 21, 2013

The exhibit entitled 5 x 3 presents three of the artist’s pieces inspired by the same theme on each of the five surfaces of the space (four walls and the floor). Such an expression is a good illustration of François Morellet’s clear and intelligible approach, to which he has always been able to give a form that is plastically convincing and pleasing.

5 x 3 appears particularly well conceived in the diversity of its techniques and their results: painting on canvas stretched on a frame, three-dimensional sculpture, relief with cutout shapes and artificial lighting, modular pieces of sheet metal, adhesive tape applied to the wall. With each formula, there is a different effect resulting in several results—three results in particular—due to the use of systems allowing development and variation.

This great diversity finds its justification in the uniqueness of its concept: using an analytic approach to understand the mechanism of creation of forms, and using an intelligent approach to choose the best solutions.
