Monaco's sixth sculpture biennale begins in September

From September 17th October 26th on the rue Princesse Caroline, step out to enjoy an open-air exhibition given by the Biennale de Sculpture de Monaco, which is celebrating its sixth edition. This biennale is the opportunity to discover works of art by sculptors and plastic artists from up close.

Originally, the biennale was an event that destined to remain unique, Artistes en mouvement, created in 2009 by the Monegasque artists Héléna Krajewicz and Rob Rowlands. Their desire, bring art directly to the public in unexpected places. The success was such that it has now become a real institution, a biennale of sculpture in its own right, with, for each edition, a very particular theme, and prestigious guests. For this sixth edition, it is the current theme Le Monde marche sur la tête that has been selected, hosting 14 different artists and international creators to illustrate the concept.

Sculptors with different techniques

Each artist will propose one or more poetic or engaged works, metaphorical or dreamlike, which will certainly not leave the audience indifferent. Héléna Krajewicz and Rob Rowlands will present their own vision, as well as work from German artist Maria Amos who works on glass; the Romanian sculptor Barna Gasci whose latest statues are from found objects; Gérard Braguy will propose a work dedicated to icebergs; Colombian Elisabeth Brainos will present a sculpture made of bronze, resin, and semi-precious stones; Valerie Denamur will offer a 3D vision; the designer Maurizio del Piano; the French artist Marc Gaillet; the duo Aleksandra Lawicka Cuper and Alain Lapicoré; the sculptor Hervé Nys and his biomechanical works; the sculptor Gery Rurent; the sculptress on steel Setch, aka Sophie Gastaud; and the sculptor Frédéric Tostain. As many sculptors as techniques, which will delight an ever larger audience.
