This autumn, Wallonie-Bruxelles International pays tribute to Jean-Michel Folon's sculpture, through hs friend Thierry Renauld's lens.
This exhibition gathers 50 pictures taken by the photographer between 1995 and 2020.
The photographer discovered the artworks by chance, in Brussels where Folon had put them on show. Overwhelmed, he sends him pictures, each with a heartfelt text written by Jean-Claude Georges. Touched, enthusiast, Folon will ask Thierry Renault to photograph his exhibitions.
Of this complicity, Folon wrote "Sometimes, something happens, gives meaning to your creations. Meeting Therry Renault was, for me, a unique moment, he had rea my thoughts (...) The sun caressing my sculpture brought it a life different than a second before. Thierry, looking at a sculpture, follows the path the sun just took. His gaze listens to the light. He reads the sculpture as he would an improvised poem".
From 04 September to 04 December 2021.
