After the contextual installation "Raging Dreams", realized at S12 gallery in Bergen (Norway), Baptiste Debombourg presents his new solo show « TRANSIENT » at krupic kersting gallery in Cologne (Germany).

 

« Transient » explores the transformative aspects of the material, and the ever-changing state of matter, that goes beyond our human perception.

 

Everything that we perceive is subject to the effect of time and gravity, a slow transformation of material in time.
It is this invisible force that interests the artist, and through control, but also accident and improvisation, he explores his subject.

 

Debombourg offers to the viewer an experience of the transformation, of the transient state of matter, and a new vision of light and darkness.

 

« The tangible treatment in monochrome black lends the work a status that is at least two-fold – sculptural and pictorial – and gives rise to additional questions related to the work’s setting, plane, vanishing points, surfaces, volume, reflections, and the position of the viewer ».*
