Born in Algiers, Henri Olivier is a French sculptor. Following his studies of plastic expression at Villa Arson, he developed alongside his practice as an artist, an experience of the garden and landscape.
The work of Henri Olivier questions the relationship of sculpture to the garden, the environment and the landscape, but also to our own perception of space. As an American writer Allen S. Weiss puts it, “his sculptures serve as catalysts to put the mind, the gaze and the body in motion.”
When he presents his works in a gallery or a museum, Henri Olivier composes his exhibitions as a landscape: we had at Loft and Bel Oeil, the opportunity to experience this, in the context of exhibitions in our showrooms, or during events at our clients homes … the impact of his intervention on the scene is directly palpable.
Bel Oeil is proud to have contributed to the acquisition of a Henri installation in the MAMAC collection in Nice, visible in the permanent exhibitions of the museum.
The following pieces are part of the collection Bel Oeil:
– ligne d’horizon – édition de 5 expl.
– banc « que faire en un lieu à moins que l’on y songe » – édition de 5 expl.
