The french artist Guillaume Leblon creates site-specific installations, sculptures, videos or works on paper which transform our perception of the space and its function. Through a sort of staged presentation of his work, he charges his objects with metaphorical meanings, introducing a certain uneasiness that affects and stimulates our perception. With a nuanced and intuitive vocabulary, his work explores the physical potentialities of forms and materials.
Leblon’s fifth exhibition at ProjecteSD is called America. The title comes from the celebrated work by Allen Ginsberg, a poem written in 1956 and one significant literary statement of political unrest in the post-World War II United States. Leblon has been living in New York since 2015, so it is not by coincidence that his experience there has influenced the choice of this title.
