1928 - 2005
Trained at the Ecole du Louvre, Arman joined the New Realists movement in 1960. His sculpture, often constituted by accumulation, is marked by the awareness that the object itself can carry more meaning than its image. It is in this perspective that, in the 1980s, he began a series of disarticulated, cut-out statues. These statues are both a tribute to ancient art, but also an invitation to the viewer, who can modulate the work, becoming an artist himself, for a moment.
