Lean-Luc Vilmouth (b. 1952), studied and worked in London during the early 1980s and now lives and works in Paris. He is regarded as a younger generation of artists as one of the outstanding conceptualists and poetic voices in the current creative debate. His sculptural installations are concerned with an investigation into the ‘world of objects’ through the language of art.
The exhibition comprises of a series of installations, including a new multi-media work, Autoportrait, which is both autobiographical and universal in its references to theories of evolution. Along with Vilmouth’s Channel Fish at the new Waterloo International rail terminal, much of the work in the show can be read as offering an alternative perspective to a society which has become dominated by rationalism and materialism and lost touch with nature and it’s animal origins.
