Stéphane Gautier toys collection

Architecte de la mémoire, Stéphane Gautier collecte depuis toujours jouets et objets du quotidien, qui – après réactualisation – constituent la moelle d’une série de sculptures : les Toys collection. C’est de cette matière que le plasticien agglomère des centaines de petits soldats en un cœur rutilant de douceur, qu’il fait couler un magma de petits riens d’un robinet doré, qu’il nous fait voir des éléphants roses hypnotiques de détails…

 

An architect of memory, Stéphane Gautier has always collected toys and everyday objects, which form the basis of a series of sculptures, entitled the Toys collections. For the artist, these toys are a kind of language, they prevail on our senses and mark out our history. The repository of a buried private world, they are our instruments of recollection. Based on this material, the artist amasses hundreds of small soldiers in one heart glowing with tenderness, he lets flow a magma of bits and pieces from a golden tap and he shows us pink elephants in mesmerising detail…
