Monsters

"Monster" is a term designating this pile of objects abandoned in the street waiting to be taken away by the cleaning services. Even if they are anonymous and temporary, they function as public sculptures and these unconscious assemblages clearly evoke the vocabulary of contemporary sculpture (Caro, Judd, Serra etc.)

The project consisted in removing one of this assemblages from the street exactly as I found it, to cast it in bronze and give it the same patina as classical outdoor sculptures, to finally replace it in the public space.

Le "Monstre" désigne dans le langage courant les encombrants, ces amas d’objets ménagers en fin de vie, déposés sur la voie publique pour être enlevés par les services de propreté. Ce sont des sculptures publiques, anonymes et temporaires dont la disposition et les volumes rappellent nettement le vocabulaire de la sculpture contemporaine (A.Caro, D.Judd, R.Serra etc).

Le projet a consisté à prélever tel quel un de ces assemblages dans la rue, de le fondre en bronze, de le patiner du même vert-de-gris vieilli que les sculptures équestres classiques et de le replacer dans l’espace public.

Julien Berthier (né en 1975 à Besançon, vit et travaille à Aubervilliers) réalise des sculptures, des vidéos, des photographies et des dessins.
