I am delighted to introduce my exhibition with SAPAR CONTEMPORARY gallery in Tribeca  until July 27th, 2024. I will be present with Art historian dr Barbara Stehle on opening day, Thursday June 27th, from 6 to 8 pm.

Anne De Villeméjane is a French Sculptor based in New York. Villeméjane‘s work owes to the modernist tradition of Giacometti and Germaine Richier, and the ancient art of Etruscan bronze.
Divinities and Fusion are two works featuring a couple. They represent two principles, male and female, associated with ancestral divinities and the world we live in. Each is independent and yet complementary. They can exist side by side or turn into one. 
Villeméjane’s figures are usually female. It is rare that she includes both genders. But with cardboard, it is the couple that she wanted to investigate. 
Villeméjane’s work is the result of experiments with unusual materials. She repurposes elements of various origins to include in her sculpture’s structure and skin. Materiality nurtures the expressivity of her art. Some of her favorites are metal grids, washers, nails, and cardboards. I have talked to her about her process and interest, what resides at the core of her creativity.
