La Patinoire Royale - galerie Valérie Bach is pleased to present at the gallery the second exhibition of Pierre Marie Lejeune at the gallery.
Born in 1954, Pierre Marie Lejeune defines himself as a sculptor-draftsman. This exhibition will reflect these two practices since it will present not only sculptures but also a series of recent drawings.
Fellow of the 'Villa Medici outside the walls' in 1983, he spent a year in Luxor. His meeting in the 80s with Niki de Saint Phalle was decisive and strong ties of work and friendship united them until the death of Niki in 2002. Since then, he has not stopped developing a repertoire of forms which is similar to the writing of a virtual alphabet that he declines throughout his work. His favourite materials are steel, glass, light and water. Wishing to intervene as little as possible on the material, he has always favoured poor materials and refuses any concession to ornamentation.
He has exhibited in several museums and art centres: Mamac (Nice), Arsenal Metz, National Museum of China (Beijing), at the Seoul Art Center, National Gallery Sofia (Bulgaria), Park Tournay-Solvay in Brussels, (European Space for Sculpture) where he was the French sculptor chosen to exhibit during the French Presidency of the EU.
He has also presented monumental sculpture sets in the public space, in the cities of Shanghai, Beijing, Metz, La Haye, Boulogne-Billancourt, Auvers-sur-Oise. Pierre Marie Lejeune has completed numerous projects and orders in Europe (Germany, Belgium, Italy, France, Portugal), the United States China and Corea. His work is regularly exhibited by several major galleries in Europe and China.
