guided tour of the workshops of a plastic sculptor

• Presentation of materials used in the creation of monumental works, features, lasting qualities.
• Introduction to metal working tools.

The book "The Sublimated Metal"

40 years of metal sculpture will be made available to visitors.

Alain Vuillemet was born in 1947 in Levallois-Perret.

He exhibited his first sculptures in 1974 at the Salon de
May, at the National Museum of Modern Art.
During the next fifteen years, his works were
regularly presented in France, but also abroad
Dallas, Lausanne, Luxembourg, Madrid, Milan, New York.
His works are present in many private and institutional collections.

Artistic positioning Vuillemet

The monumental works of Alain Vuillemet strong and inhabited have their own existences carried by the gaze of the spectator, they are the product of metal metamorphoses, of sublimation of the metallic materials they carry in them the force of the elements the search of the absolute, of the philosopher’s stone.
The tools are those of industry, presses, welding stations, plasma cutting stations, grinders, grinding and polishing reels.
The 100-ton press is its pencil to deform the metal sheet creating hollows and bumps forming waves of material that stretch and relax the metal, the metal skins are worked on the surface, scarified, ground, the use of abrasives with different grains, the annoyed grindings give depth to the metal surfaces creating holographic effects that give the viewer the impression of entering the material.
Another facet of metalworking, highlight the resonance capacities of metals.
The spectator forgets the metal to make a metaphysical experience, to feel inside the message of the artist.
