At a time when the mechanical age has transformed our landscapes and our practices -by driving the craftsman out of his workshop to replace him with the faster and more inanimate machine- Antoine Renard breathes life back into his works: the manufactured object is transformed into a handmade ceramic, sensitive to its environment. The sculptures are erected like ruins, similar to the vestiges of memory, at the crossroads of absence and presence, lifting the veil on figures emerging from the past.
Relational dynamics invite themselves in the space of exhibition awakening the senses beyond the visible: the sense of smell is solicited, the memory emerges. is solicited, the memory emerges. The scented effluents shape the bodies. By adding fragrances to his sculptures, using Synarome ingredients such as Ambrarome and Algenone, Antoine Renard pays tribute to the infinite complexity of a personality often reduced to caricature and silence.
