LES BRUTALISTES
MARTINE FEIPEL ET JEAN BECHAMEIL

Together, Feipel & Bechameil create installations that blend illusion, imagination, instability and the irrational.

In Place Clémence-Lefeuvre, they have designed a sculpture that plays with the neighbourhood’s verticality and its architectural layout. The geometrical and colourful composition of their sculptures acts like a ceramic and concrete volume painting within a given space. Influenced by the legacy of Brutalist architecture, the artists have chosen to use exposed concrete in the tradition of Le Corbusier – who celebrated its “wild, natural and primitive” qualities – along with a precious material: enameled lava stone.

At the heart of their artistic approach, Feipel & Bechameil propose new modes of sharing. Since the sculptures are equipped with wood-burning stoves, locals are invited to come together and cook as a group. Through the simple act of preparing food, this artwork participates in the everyday life of the community.


AN ART ET TERRITOIRE ARTWORK MADE WITH SUPPORT BY KAUFMAN & BROAD PERMANENT WORK. With support from the hospitality management school Vatel for the activation of the ovens beginning in autumn 2020.
