ÉTOILES DU MATIN
VINCENT MAUGER

Vincent Mauger presents Étoiles du matin on the forecourt of the Art Museum. Strange warriors made up of elements of old armor, repainted in different military hues, who deliberately mix almost contradictory orders: play and war, merchandise in the window and classical sculpture, the old and the contemporary, the calm of the museum and urban violence.

 

Vincent Mauger is a sculptor born in Rennes in 1976. he trained at the fine arts schools of Angers, Paris and Nantes. There, he produced several works of Estuaire Nantes <> Saint-Nazaire, including in 2019 a series of five Semaphores allowing the viewer to climb monumental sculptures to look at the Loire.

The title, Étoiles du matin, designates both the planet Venus or the Shepherd's Star, which guided the traveler at dawn, but also a particularly terrible weapon of the Middle Ages. At the end of the handle, the metal mass unfolded in a sharp star.
