For Dubourg, furniture is only a pretext for exploring the meaning of art. It is not an end in itself but a means of embodying the artistic act in the material. In his hands, the object exceeds its function and becomes aesthetic, poetizing ordinary life. The artist explores the material: he burns, melts, sculpts, digs and hammers. His works are made of bronze, terracotta, aluminum, steel, wood, and much more, playing on contrasts and fundamental oppositions — empty and full, earthly and celestial, masculine and feminine, wild and tame. His furniture becomes sculpture, and then the sculpture frees itself from any function and only exists to give body to the material.
"Density" brings together sculptures made of aluminum, paintings of burned wood, and ceramic pieces that constitute an alphabet of forms that are articulated together to invite us into the artist's universe. Vincent Dubourg's relationship with matter is physical. The artist captures the moment of transformation, and invites us to discover the moment of fusion, when everything metamorphoses and freezes, pushing back the limits of his art as he has been doing for many years.
