Geometric Sculptures by David Mesguich.
In a obsessional way David travels cities and develops an atypical mapping by focusing his interest for all which, in those spaces of passage separates and divides up.
For more than 15 years it’s by the addicting exercise of graffiti that he investigated the subject. Today, it’s by drawing and by monumental installations in-situ that he re-appropriates some parcels of those aseptic territories.
This 5m tall sculpture was left on a roof during misterfreeze show in Toulouse France.
Under iconic and feminine lines, this installation represents europe and its contradictions facing the drama of families who try to reach her everyday risking their lives.
The story of “pressure”, it’s the story of people who are on the fence, inbetween worlds, those who are both on the inside and on the outside.
“Pressure” is a non-profit project, it was not made to be sold. It was created in 2013 as a donation to the street.
Early in 2016, I have been contacted by gallery 208 to create a monumental sculpture in Poznan public space, Poland.
The imposed planning was really tight, only 5 months to draw and realize a 10 meters high and 5 tons sculpture.
To imagine this sculpture I thought of my daughter, and through her to the children who would grow up here and cross the monument every day, I wanted to make a positive work that a 4 years old child will understand and who in substance will tell him: look, you can draw your own world.
This sculpture which is the portrait of my 4 years old daughter Lucie is my way to show her what she represents to me and also something i hope that will bring some sun to Poznan kids.
