Jérôme Fortin

$29.95

Seducing public and critic alike, the young artist’s minutely woven and constructed compositions of recycled materials “trigger the same fascination we get from wandering an old-fashioned museum of curiosities”. From collections of manufactured articles laid out as in an ethnographical museum, to more formal compositions that are at once pictorial and sculptural, Fortin’s transformation of materials references traditional weaving practices and environmental concerns with stunning results. More recent output reveals a progression toward a pared-down art that reveals “next to nothing” through a relentless and obsessive working of the found object.
