  • At Pierre Yermia's workshop

    Pierre Yermia has been developing for thirty years a singular work, filled with human and animal characters, all witnesses of "an endangered but optimistic and unfazed humanity".

about: 

Pierre Yermia is a French sculptor who lives and works in Charenton-le-pont, France.

My work is a constant quest for an unlikely and precarious moment of equilibrium, where strength and fragility are simultaneously confronted.

My deep-rooted human or animal "figures" are standing on their brittle limbs and are slowly rising, defying the law of gravity.

Elongated shapes, frail limbs contrast with more massive torsos, heads reduced to the essential, dominate long slender necks. Heavy and light, full and empty, convex and concave are playing a permanent game, creating a monumental and open space.

Small and medium size formats are a necessary subsequent stage to my monumental sculptures (on average, height or length: 3 m). These sculptures no matter how optimistic and serene testify to a humanity in permanent danger.
