FOR LABAUVIE, THE FOCUS ON THE LINE HAS A DOUBLE ORIGIN

The first is both classical and French and comes from the work and drawings of Auguste Rodin, particularly the drawings of the Cathedrals of France. Traveling from one village to another on his bicycle he made many studies of the moldings of these churches.

The second origin comes from the practice of steel and the forge, creating a work that commences with a drawing on the floor. It also comes from the history of American Minimalism experienced through European eyes and ears.

For Labauvie, a line of steel is a line that is built in segments. The segments interpret a handwriting, the movements of the arm and the hand. It is a line that is strengthened through its interruptions, with each interruption creating intervals and moments of silence.

THIS SEGMENTATION LEADS US TO REPETITION, TO RHYTHM, TO MUSIC...

This segmentation leads us to repetition, to rhythm, to music, to a sequence where one passes from the eye to the ear. My recent works are all readings line by line of the construction of a time of vision which joins that of listening.
