SCULPTURE, JEANNE DE PETRICONI, ELOGE DE LA FOLIE,
JEANNE DE PETRICONI, SCULPTURES, , PRINTS, SEVERAL SIZES, 2 FINISHES
Her work, mainly in Sculpture, has its origins in the history of art, poetry and science, but also in architecture and landscape.
Jeanne de Petriconi creates hybrid objects, loaded semantically from various materials.
She has exhausted places, making notebooks of drawings, sometimes in the guise of a "traveling" nine meters of a condensed life.
The Wrapped Paysage and #72 sculptures are the product of brutal gestures, taking the form of torn and rolled portions of fiction.
The obsession with collection has given way to an interest in the memory of materials and the power of natural elements: Tree to chaos or Fury.
Two lines converge: the exploration of forms and materials and the memory of spaces linked to the violence inflicted on them and their inhabitants.
A prime example is her series Eloge de la Folie (2016), based on Erasme discourse, works by Jerome Bosch, studies by Haeckel and Blossfeldt, and architectural forms.
A second example is her play "J'habiterai mon nom" (2016), which from Exile de Saint-John Perse deals with notions of memory, landscape, displacement, and exile.
