Bernar Venet

Bernar Venet

Bernar Venet is an artists whose creativity is shaped decisively by theoretical awareness.

In search of the essential, the unessential is detached in stages discovering then the essential message by reduction. Continual reduction is the result of his theoretical and vivid discourse of geometric configuration.

His freestanding sculptures made of steel, which can reach up to 37 meters, permeate the interior and exterior space as materialised movement.
