"LE CLOU DU NUMÉRO" - bronze - 22x14x28 cm - Pièce unique
In his recent work, Michel Favre leads us into a world where dimensions are reversed, where humor, concern and hope, irony and satire are always present side to side. In his bronze sculptures, the artist also integrates other materials and objects. Miniaturized human figurers are set in confrontation with large objects, such as cylinders, spheres, pyramids... These fragile beings, lilliputs, constitute the frame of his work. The sculptor chooses hollow objects to produce a feel of tension, give opposite views, report ratios of forces and show scary balancing acts. With his precise sense of observation, Michel Favre gets his inspiration from our environment. In his scenarios, he is just revealing. In avoiding any personal judgement, he leaves total freedom for interpretation to the spectator. His sculptures are mirroring our society, inviting to meditation.
