Introduction

Pierre-Alexandre Rémy's work explores the relationship between artistic intervention and the space in which it takes place. His recent work is based on the cartographic representation of the specific territory where his sculptures are to be presented. Collecting, classifying and redistributing and integrating the data which define its identity, his sculptures question space, form and body.

His steel or solution-dyed polymer ribbons seem to defy the laws of gravity; as their vibrantly colored arabesques unfurl, a new cartographic representation comes to light. The specificities of topography yield a drawing; a way of appropriating space through writing. Pierre-Alexandre Rémy's work generates hypertext for the territory, sketching a portrait made of complex folds that blends scientific and telluric approaches.
