in resonance with the 2009 Lyon biennale

The sculptures of Dominique Ghesquière (born in 1953, lives in Paris) are intriguing because of their discrete strangeness. Familiar and recognisable everyday objects recompose another reality. Curiosity is prompted to recall situations already encountered.

These works, made at La BF15 during a residence in the summer of 2009, compose an inner landscape crossed by a strong wind: the wind as principal actor, as the Baroque Element. Wooden floors and curtains are lifted, blown, shaken; the glass bulbs and chandelier pendants have disappeared, without doubt torn off. However, its unexpected material has us quickly dismissing the idea. The chandeliers filaments persistently glow, and the fleeting movement of the petrified curtain seems to attest to a rebellion of objects.
