Born in 1977 in Nantes, France, Vincent Voillat is a contemporary multidisciplinary artist. He lives and works in Paris. Since 2005, he collaborates with the Collective Mu as a scenographer and artistic director. For 3 years now, he develops a personal work mainly focused on sculpture and installation.
Vincent Voillat explores the links between a territory (real or virtual), its inhabitants and their memories. He studies more particularly the relation between the landscape and its perception. His approach is based on sampling: geological extraction of rocks, study of strata, archaeological excavations or observation of plants. He is also influenced by popular culture: music, found objects, legends… In the studio, his work consists in reinterpreting and capturing the forms, detecting the synchronicities and the logic of these territories, in a speculative way. He reinvents, through association, juxtaposition or reinterpretation, a conceptual territory whose writing and text make it possible to link these heterogeneous forms. The forms it produces are liminal, posed between several temporalities, always resilient.
