Guillaume Leblon’s work is filled with references evoking nature, the domestic environment or the artist studio. His sculptures, his objects, his installations, have always a particular trait of strangeness which concentrates the attention and arouses discussion.
Leblon’s solo presentation at Independent Brussels brings together a constellation of new and older works articulated in the space to create an unusual landscape of objects. Paintings coexist with bas-reliefs, found and transformed objects appropriated from nature dialogue with newly made sculptures. Material, form and craft are used to create a vocabulary of forms and syntax that range from the manufactured to the existent, the ephemeral to the permanent, the old to the new.
In the artist’s own words: “My work is made during my movements and travels and not really in the studio, which I regard like a receptacle where the sum of all the things I collect is to be found” And this “movements” seem to be translated into the exhibition space, as I want to offer the audience a certain point of view to look at the work so as to create a sense of strolling in the exhibition space. The exhibition becomes a landscape, a routing, without starting or ending point”.
