Born in 1971 in Lille, France, Guillaume Leblon currently lives in Paris. An admirer of the sculptor Alberto Giacometti, Leblon creates environmental installations and powerful and enigmatic sculptures, which have strong and seductive material presence. His works eschew an unambiguous reading and are full of iconographic references that allow the artist to tell new stories. Leblon’s sculptures, crystalisations of fleeting memories, are objects in which the past and present converge and the evanescent and tangible merge.
the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2015), the Institut d'Art Contemporain, Villeurbanne, France (2014), Mass Moca, North Adams, USA (2013), The Centre d’Art Contemporain in Bignan (2008) and FRAC Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain Bourgogne in Dijon (2004) have dedicated monographic exhibitions to Guillaume Leblon. His work has been exhibited at Punta della Dogana in the exhibition “Accrochage” (2016).
