Sébastien Preschoux present his fifth solo exhibition at the David Bloch Gallery in December 2018.
Sebastien Preschoux – 1974 / Paris
By watching Sébastien PRESCHOUX at work, we perceive the oscillation between the serenity of an artpiece built without haste and the tension of an infinitely precise gesture, gracefully moderated, drastically governed by a process of measures and counting. The work stretches over time, punctuated by the repeated gestures of the rulers and compasses handling.
Without impatience, Sébastien PRESCHOUX unwinds the drawing movement in time, let the material spread in the space. In two dimensions, Sébastien PRESCHOUX’s drawings seem livened up of vibrations, perhaps attributable to the inherent imperfections of the fallible nature of the hand.
Three-dimensional, the installations diffract the light and find in the natural surrounding of their implementation an obvious case. The border between art and crafts is unstable and the homology with the digital depiction too disturbing. A look without demanding will be misleading. The creative work endurance raises the «sine qua none» condition of a benevolent slow visit, so that the encounter between the eye and the object can be real, allowing what Sébastien PRESCHOUX names «the reward of the curious».
