Sylvestre Gauvrit – I AM LIKE YOU
03 July – 31 July 2021
Whitestone Gallery Hong Kong
“My mission here is to contribute to raising humanity’s consciousness level with art.
Allow my art to touch you, connect with you, awaken your senses and let your inner mind go with the flow of mother nature… Life is an amazing gift, and we should all honour that. Be aware of its fragility and difficulty so you can enjoy and be grateful every day to be able to live in this magic world. Beautiful and bad… yin and yang…
Sylvestre Gauvrit, July 2021
Whitestone Gallery Hong Kong is pleased to present I AM LIKE YOU, the solo exhibition of French artist and sculptor Sylvestre Gauvrit (b. 1977). Graduated from the Accademia Belle Arti of Carrara and apprenticed in various institutional art studios in Pietrasanta, Italy, where Gauvrit mastered his technique of carving marble, the show includes the artist’s most recent works in feminine shapes and choreographic forms, as well as never-before-seen sketches.
Inspired by his childhood observing nature and his times surfing around the world, his works are defined by sensual lines and natural flows, such as “Coco” (2021) and “Orchis” (2011). Gauvrit is interested in the underlying energies and feelings that his sculptures provoke. He considers his works as a space where the seen and unseen, fragile and robust, destroy and construct, find harmony with each other. The largest sculpture of this exhibition “Menuetto” (2011) is carved in the rhythm of the dance, and to create an immersive experience, a special soundtrack is composed (name of the soundtrack) by (name of the composers).
Gauvrit’s sculptures have been showcased in numerous public and private spaces among others in Paris, London, Amsterdam, China and Hong Kong.
