PETER DOWNSBROUGH

Peter Downsbrough, né en 1940 dans le New Jersey. Son champ de création s’étend à plusieurs disciplines comme la photographie, la sculpture et le dessin. Son travail offre une réflexion sur l’importance de la position : celle de la sculpture dans son contexte, celle du spectateur dans son rapport à l’œuvre et celle de l’artiste face au monde qui l’entoure. En utilisant des lignes et des mots qui marquent ou soulignent l’architecture, un dialogue est entamé. Ils nous invitent à un autre mode de déplacement du regard, un autre déroulement de la lecture du lieu, du contexte, de l’œuvre.

Peter Downsbrough, born in New Jersey in 1940, his works deals with the relationship between architecture, typography, and the spaces in between. He accomplishes this by employing multiple artistic mediums such as photography, sculpture and drawing over the course of his career.

His oeuvre reflects his preoccupation with architecture and the complex relationship between the viewer and their perception of their surroundings in architectural spaces.

Downsbrough currently lives and works in Brussels.
