About the artist
Xavier Mary’s work clearly shows a minimalist sensibility. The rewriting of minimalism is done here in an intuitive and energetic way.
Inspired by highway metaphors and graphic references, his industrial-looking sculptures create an allusive and jubilant play between minimal form and psychedelia, between radicalism and ramblings. By resorting to the combinatorial capacities of prefabricated and standardized elements, the compositions echo each other and confront us with games of symmetry, fragmentation and duplication. Xavier Mary’s position as an artist is one of constant negotiation between different regimes, connecting tradition and avant-garde, sincerity and irony, past and future, real and virtual.
Born in 1982 in Liège (Belgium), Xavier Mary currently lives and work in Brussels.
