JACQUES VIEILLE - Système Naturel - Natural System

Jacques Vieille - Système Naturel - Natural System

FR. La nature de Jacques Vieille
Il suffit de remonter au début des années 1980, de feuilleter visuellement les réalisations de Jacques Vieille, pour comprendre combien cet artiste a su parfaitement comprendre l’obsolescence de la séparation cartésienne entre nature et culture qui sédimente notre conception de la protection environnementale. A posteriori, certaines de ses sculptures pourraient même se lire dans une perspective écologique. Non au sens d’un art écologique au fonctionnalisme réhabilitatif, mais bien au sens d’une conscience aiguë de l’interrelation féconde entre les systèmes naturels et nos sociétés. ( Bénédicte Ramade )

ENG. Jacques Vieille is both architect, landscaper, designer, gardener ... There are many aspects to his work as a sculptor which is, since its inception, rooted in an intelligent, ironic and poetic expression that hovers between nature and culture, art and artifice, the organic and the mechanical. A subtle construction with many facets that deal with the mimetism, the exchange or opposition that occurs between these various elements, whose base is the column.

This ‘living pillar’, descendant of the tree and the architectural structure, is expressed in many ways throughout his work, and also constitutes the foundation that underpins his approach as a sculptor of spaces.
His latest works, which combine the highly artificial with soilless cultivation and the most sophisticated tools and materials used in industrial construction and agribusiness, reveal the constant questioning, the critical and amused eye which he casts upon our everyday landscape.
