Baselitz sculpteur


Je suis allée au Musée d’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, voir la rétrospective de l’œuvre du sculpteur contemporain allemand Baselitz. J’ai croqué des lignes, des blocs, pour que ma mémoire garde à vif quelque part, cet art brut et sans concession. Il hache, tronçonne et extrait du bois, des figures et des corps. Baselitz instaure un dialogue entre son art et la nature. Le bois comme premier moyen d’expression en est le signe le plus évident, mais lorsqu’on voit ses sculptures, il se passe quelque chose de plus : ces figures debout et droites, ces corps asexués, deviennent médium et nous rappellent à ce lien, celui évident et aujourd’hui ténu qu’il y a entre nous et la terre, matrice de toute chose. À la manière des arts premiers, ces œuvres essentielles nous questionnent sur ce que peut être la nature humaine.
Alors courez la voir !

I recently visited and enjoyed at the Musée d’Art Moderne (Museum of Modern Art) in Paris the latest exhibition by Baselitz, a famous contemporary German sculptor. I have been so impressed by his work that I produced a few sketches and drawing made of lines and blocs during the visit: a way to storage in my brain his naive and without concession art style. He successfully builds faces and bodies by chopping and cutting up pieces of wood; look at the pictures herebelow, they speak by themselves. Baselitz has set a dialogue in between his art style and nature.
Wood is not only a simple raw material for supporting his art, it is much more: wood is his spiritual messenger. As soon as wood becomes sculpture, something happens: the straight and sharp faces – as for the asexual bodies – become a direct link to remind us our link to earth and nature, matrix of our world and life.
Like primitive arts, his work raises fundamental questions about human nature.
Go and visit, you should not react but enjoy.
