Fabrice HYBER

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 La Seine Musicale

At La Seine Musicale, the artist installs HommeFemme, a couple of small green characters whose body orifices pour out streams of water. This sculpture-fountain is 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 this couple, a strange duet from which ooze the flows and moods of the bodies.

With his sculptures installed both in La Seine Musicale and in the Bassin Takis in Paris La Défense, the artist makes the link between the two territories.
