Alexandre Nicolas

Bio / Alexandre Nicolas

Born in 1970 in Toulouse, France

Lives and works between Paris and Toulouse.

Well-known for his inclusions in synthetic crystal, Alexandre is a sculptor directly affiliated to pop culture.

Alexandre found a privileged material in casting resin, a form of synthetic crystal that makes it possible to suspend time. He interprets myths, perverts them and presents them, cast in an inclusion. Thus the object floating in resin and at the same time captured by technology is offered to our critical point of view, showing us a mirror of our consumer society.

Between humour, sarcasm and a critical approach, he uses symbols to question the observer on his or her own imaginary world, fantasies and values.

His surgically precise work stands out against any form of discrimination and invites the spectator to reflect on notions of race, nature, mutations and power.
