Dominique PIVETEAUD, is a sculptor born in paris in 1959, and he worked for many years in Berlin. Very quickly, he favors sharing workshops at homes, in community and enriches the contact with other artists. Author of numerous publications in "the School of Recreation", his writings are now reference to the issue of the teaching of literature. This reflection on the relationship with the literary and more broadly cultural echoes the questions running through his plastic work, especially when endorsed the words of Bernard Charlot and definies the human condition as "entering a world where humans are in the form of men and all that humans have built previously". By this way of thinking humans, it is fully in the social space and it is natural in the urban environnement that Dominique Piveteaud draws its "matter". The artist takes the bitten by rust, zinc plates used, the son of twisted iron and other materials impregnated with time and history that assembled by successive adjustements irons. Consideration of the artist for this memory leads to revisit these fragments dedicated disposal to give their lives in his work.
The gallery's words
I discovered the works of Dominique Piveteaud during an exhibition by a colleague. When he stopped his activity he offered me to represent Dominique's artworks. I then met Dominique, a reserved, posed artist who talks about his work with a lot of humility, the relationship between the work and the artist is undeniable. We have been working together for a number of years and I always discover with pleasure the work of memory, material and composition.
