Biography

Agnès Sébyleau

A graduate of modern cinema and literature, Agnès Sébyleau worked for a long time as an Artistic Director in a communication agency and began her artistic practice of crochet as a self-taught student. His textile work came late, as a revelation.

When asked to share her inspirations with us, she evokes the need of Brancusi, whose studio she regularly visits in Paris and Penone. The so-called primitive art is also a reference, of which it admires the grace and strength of stylisations, the invention of form. 

Her work is, moreover, that of form, which she seeks to develop by playing with voids, by digging shadows, to make flows pass. The crochet sculptures are flexible, they are rarely frozen and exist in different ways, we can manipulate them and surprise us with unexpected renderings. They have a weight, a body, they are dynamic. Fantasized figures, they evoke - the animal world, vegetal, mineral - without specifying.

Agnès Sebyleau claims the use of plant material, flax, hemp, and refuses to use wool. She likes the raw, sober and irregular look of the string that she crochets exclusively on crochet #4. This figure finds particular importance in his work, it is a true source of reflection because it represents human symmetry, it is an evocation of living.

This figure finds particular importance in his work, it is a true source of reflection because it represents human symmetry, it is an evocation of living.

The practice of crochet does not interest him as such, his point remains basic, his purpose is to «manufacture matter». By doubling the stitches, the matter grows;by jumping from the stitches, it decreases.Her creative gesture is intuitive, Agnès does not go through the sketching stage and gives birth to her pieces spontaneously but rigorously, after long hours of work. Each piece has its own logic and follows the path of the thread.

Born in 1961, Agnès Sebyleau lives and works in the Paris region. The gallery Armel Soyer is pleased to represent it for the first time in the gallery with a series of works entitled La Ligne.
The Line
The Line consists of various bicoloured pieces of white and greyish twine. All are born of the same idea of double development from a line that continues, driven by a game of divisions and mergers. All of them respond to the number 4, which to me is an echo of the structure.
