Alexandre Mussard: " Les Petites Chaises "

Entitled " Les Petites Chaises," Little Chairs, is Alexandre Mussard's first exhibition at the Galerie Antonine Catzeflis in Paris. The 25-years-old French artist studied architecture and design at the Academie Charpentier, Esad Reims, and Ecole Camondo. It was during a course, by twisting a wire, that he gave shape to his first small chair.
" I have treasured this miniature sculpture. I immediately knew that it was going to become something essential for me. This little chair is like a character brought to light, fragile, playful and discrete....."
Mussard's show is dedicated to the chair in the form of miniature wire sculptures, displayed in various positions: chairs come alive, set in the middle of a circus tent - a wink to Calder's small circus - stacked on top of each other or suspended by balloons. Alongside the small artworks, including necklaces, are several larger chair sculptures.
Alexandre Mussard, a talent to watch who creates simple and poetic objects.
