Baptiste Debombourg is a French artist known for his artistic installation on an architectural level, but today we present the “crashed furniture” he creates, the inception series.
Sculptor Baptiste Debombourg is known for his spatial arrangements, which are made from objects and materials that are all commonly found in our everyday lives. These destroyed pieces which have been rebuilt convey their own narratives which can be interpreted in many ways but mostly as a commentary or a socially critical statement about the world we live in where the destroyed objects become the storytellers through Debombourg’s intervention. The stories that they tell however, are unrelated to their own functionality and materialistic purpose, which is in turn reinvented.
The artist says he was just curious about everything, and was trying to find the best way to understand things. He was very scared of becoming an artist, but chose the arts because it was the best way to have the freedom to find, to search and create projects.
Debombourg states “I was also asking myself about the question of ego because the ego is very bad for the arts. I thought a lot about this question, and finally, I chose the way of art because it allows the freedom to imagine everything you can do, and in our society, I think that’s very important, to have a way to imagine something and a way to think it would be possible to do it.”
