Ulysse Lacoste, born in 1981, lives and works in Bourgogne
There is in Ulysse Lacoste's work a humanism that borrows somewhat from Renaissance tradition where knowledge is the most noble of all the arts. His sculptures seem to be scholarly themselves, like phantasmagorical machines by da Vinci. The small piece of 10 centimeters he named Rulpidon seems to contain the greatest of mysteries. Is it a jewel, a tool or a game? No doubt all three at once. It is in the movement of its ingenious and yet hazardous lines (born of a machining error), that the volume reveals its true contemplative nature.
