Lilian Bourgeat  - magnus facio!

Exhibition "magnus facio!" at Örebro Art Galler

The exhibition at Örebro Art Gallery shows several of the artist’s latest works. Ordinary daily objects like a light bulb, a chair, a table, a pair of rubber boots and a shopping cart are sculpturally reproduced at large scale to question spatial relations and cast new perspectives on the surrounding environment.

Artist Statement

Lilian Bourgeat’s work is characterized by a constant search for play and interaction between art and viewer. The artist brings a pinch of subtle humor into our everyday life by enlarging day-to-day objects. His sculptural works attract the viewer with their playfulness, while at the same time they create confusion through their oversized format.

By making the reference points blurry, Bourgeat raises questions about the relationship between art and the real world, as well as the relationship between representation and perception.
