The living sphere as well as the transformations of matter due to the passage of time are found at the heart of Lionel Sabatté’s work.

For several years now, the artist has been carrying out a process of collecting materials that carry with them the traces of a lived experience: dust, ash, charcoal, dead skin, tree stumps … These elements are unexpectedly combined and the works thus created carry within them both a delicacy but also a “disturbing strangeness“.

Practicing both painting, drawing and sculpture, Lionel Sabatté inscribes his artistic approach in a continuous exploration of the material.

His research gives rise to poetic, sensitive and disturbing works which participate in a global reflection on our condition and the place we occupy in our environment.
