Lionel Estève forsakes traditional object making in favor of other creative exhibition strategies, using found or recycled materials to create extremely simple assemblages and installations. Finding that density of content can produce experiences as deep and rich as larger, more enveloping pieces, he focuses on combining small, tiny things like thread and gelatin sheets or repurposed parts of other larger objects. Sometimes his fragile installations move and rotate on strings in the manner of Alexander Calder’s mobiles; in others he creates minimalist sculptures that prompt a close investigation of materiality.
