The artist

Jean-Michel Othoniel

From drawing to sculpture, from installation to photography and from writing to performance, Jean-Michel Othoniel has, since the end of the 1980s, invented a universe with multiple contours. Initially exploring materials with reversible qualities such as sulfur or wax, he has used glass since 1993. Today, his works have taken on an architectural dimension and are often found in gardens or historical sites through public or private commissions throughout the world.
