Description

Until Sunday, September 22, 2019, 2019


This summer, Le Touquet-Paris-Plage invites you to explore the world of Pierre Marie Lejeune. The artist materializes a plastic language with universal forms. From drawing to sculpture, an art is revealed where materials, forms and lights play an essential role. At the museum and in the urban space, plunge into the heart of a unique artistic approach, opening towards a new imagination.

Twelve monumental sculptures occupy the parks and gardens of the city. By games of lights and reflections, they are essential and merge with the surrounding environment. The faces covered with mirrors capture the image of the passers-by and the surroundings. The landscapes of the resort are reflected there creating a surprising visual shift. In the lightness of light, the artist combines raw materials such as steel (Skytrap, 2018), wood (Mega Hop, 2008) and stone (Megastone, 2015).

At the museum, an important part of the work of Pierre Marie Lejeune is revealed. About sixty drawings retrace the different artistic projects.The artist defines himself as a draftsman, sculptures being the culmination of the process of creation. He develops several drawings, models, plans and watercolors before each realization. More than just sketches, they are conceived as works in their own right. Unpublished series are exhibited as The Alphabet (1983) or Move, a project around sport (2017).

About the artist
In 1981, Pierre Marie Lejeune meets Niki de Saint-Phalle and Jean Tinguely. He participated in the creation of the Stravinsky fountain near the Pompidou Center. This collaboration continues later with the Tarot Garden in Tuscany. In 1983, he obtained a grant from Villa Medicis outside the walls. During his trip to Egypt, he is marked by the architecture, the overwhelming light and the materiality of the sand. It is then that he abandons painting for volume. At the end of the 1990s, his artistic vocabulary refined to become the one we know today: an imaginary alphabet mobilizing form, material and light.In the early 2000s, sculptures take hold of the public space and gain in monumentality.
The works of Pierre Marie Lejeune have been exhibited all over the world: in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Korea, the United States, China, Japan but also in Egypt and Bulgaria.
