Dimitri, December 2016
The workshop, the house, the garden, all three places form a whole, the testimonial of an artist, his aesthetic and his time. The residence we are setting up attests to a wish for continuity. We are maintaining a certain know-how and preserving a memory, but also and above all, making it known and bringing it to life.
Within this framework, we believe it is necessary to open up the Atelier Pierre Culot to other artists and other practices. This workshop must live as much by its references, its past, its collection and Pierre’s creations as by what can be created there today, so that its heritage can live on. This residence will keep the workshop alive, maintain a dialogue and encourage debate. These encounters are all the more necessary at a time when the world of art is so exciting and when frontiers between disciplines are becoming blurred, whether it be design, sculpture, architecture or craftsmanship.
