Having worked for a long time in the theater sector as a props and decorator, it is obvious that Rémi Bergeron's previous experiences have significantly influenced his current artistic process.
The object has fascinated the artist for several years. It is through his sculptures that he attempts to exploit this fascination. His works explore, on the one hand, the possibilities offered by the combination of different materials. On the other hand, his work revolves around the object itself, that is to say around its shape, its structure and its experience. Bergeron likes to observe it, tame it and respect it in its entirety. Often, the artist uses it as is: with its patina, its particularities and its imperfections.
The sculptor constantly questions the predefined role of objects, always seeking to give them new meanings. In a way, his work is similar to that of a poet who uses words to give them another meaning, another direction. This way of seeing objects differently has always been a source of inspiration for him and the starting point of his artistic work.
Bergeron's sculptures often come to life as figures, animals or other fanciful subjects. His works demonstrate a softness and sensuality. Sometimes enigmatic, sometimes unusual, these delicate characters, both imbued with history and poetry, move in space. They come to life.
