Kinetic Sculptures by Jacques Jarrige, 2015

About

Sculptures in hand-hammered aluminum by Jacques Jarrige. Jacques Jarrige has always explored the relationship between line and space, material and void to its very limit in his sculpture, furniture and jewelry. In each medium a gestural, often hesitant line strives to embrace an elusive volume. The tension between minimal solid shapes and expansive open space is at the heart of his three-dimensional drawings. Then there is the Kinetic element: the line itself already embodies a searching, an almost trembling movement feeling its way into emptiness, unguided by any preliminary sketches. The sculpture transmits a sense of instability, as well as actual motion, inflecting a decisive physical presence with a gestural expressiveness Jacques Jarrige has a curiosity about poor materials and their untapped potential. Hammering a relatively modest metal repeatedly has a functional purpose of annealing and shaping a material otherwise soft and malleable and then the hammered metal acquires a luminous presence. Now the surface carries a memory matrix of the energy spent on laboring it. The repetitive nature of the hammering engages the artist in a meditative, call-and-response-like dialogue with the metal. It is the presence of the artist’s gesture within that in turn allows for a meaningful dialogue between Waves and the viewer.
