Concept, Staging and Sculptures

Clédat & Petitpierre


© Yvan Clédat

The coexistence of sculptural objects and concealed bodies forms the genesis of the work of visual and performative artists Yvan Clédat and Coco Petitpierre. In Ermitologie, the hero of the fable is a hermit transfigured into Giacometti’s The Walking Man, who hankers after the Palaeolithic “Venus of Willendorf”. They are accompanied by a robot-monster straight out of Max Ernst’s painting The Temptation of Saint Anthony, as well as their odd pet, a plant-ball. A vibrant and sculptural universe is created, from which emerges a veritable lexicon of the senses.
