Fabrice HYBER - Les amis, 2020
Born in 1961 in Luçon, France. Lives and works in Paris, France
Fabrice Hyber is a protean artist who conceives his work as a gigantic rhizome that develops on a principle of echoes. Invariably starting from the practice of drawing and painting, he invests all the modes of expression and constantly diffuses his work from one medium to another: "Irrespective of the materiality of the work, the only thing that counts is its ability to trigger behaviours".
The work for Paris La Défense
In Paris La Défense, the artist disseminates little green men and women whose body orifices spill streams of water. These fountain-sculptures are the result of a work initiated more than twenty years ago on the occasion of a public commission from the town of Bessines (Deux Sèvres). Since then L'homme de Bessines has travelled the world. This incredible expansion continues today with the invasion of the Takis basin by a group of sculptures, Les amis, who tirelessly express, exchange and pour out their limpid moods.
