Guillaume Leblon

Guillaume Leblon’s work resists simplifying discourses as much as the enclosure of forms, developing a new sculptural landscape that favors a poetic connection to space and the world — promoting an active, mobile and open relationship. With a nuanced and intuitive vocabulary, his sculptures modify our perception of both the atmospheric and memorial dimensions of time and space by highlighting the physical potentialities of forms and materials.

Guillaume Leblon (b.1971, Lille) lives and works in New York. Selected solo exhibitions include CAG, Vancouver; MassMoCA, North Adams; IAC - Institut d’Art Contemporain, Villeurbanne; Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, Paris; MUDAM, Luxembourg; Culturgest, Porto; and Kunstverein Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf. Leblon has participated in group exhibitions at venues such as La Verrière Hermès, Brussels; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona; Biennale de Lyon, Lyon; Secession, Vienna; Bétonsalon, Paris; Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, St. Gallen; MARTa Herford, Herford; Fridericianum, Kassel; and CAC Vilnius, Vilnius.
