Portrait Yann

Striving to make something from accidents, Yann Perrier works wood like a fetish: he uses the burn from the flame, the attack from the chain saw, wood broken by wind, material damaged by time and therefore of no monetary value, and he creates a certain ambiguity between the natural accident and his own work where a phase of destruction also seems to be necessary.

Yann Perrier magnifies the rusticity of this wood by associating acrylic glass which, like incantations for peace, transforms his sculptures into pockets of light, into living inclusions or into fossil fragments.
