Description

Benoît MAIRE’s valet falls within the Scandinavian tradition of mural valets. Articulated and mobile, this functional sculpture in solid oak welcomes every day’s trinkets and can be used as a vest and tie hanger. The three organic forms that constitute VM1 are the negative of some of the artist’s freehand cuts destined for other sculptures. MAIRE has developed a personal system, which differentiates between «decided objects» as work of art and «waste», in order to thus enhance the latter through a reintegration into his work.
The editing process is here an extension of Benoît MAIRE’s reflection as the numerical tool has restored every irregularity of the artist hand in the reproduction of 50 similar items.
