Responding to her personality, Brigitte NaHoN’s sculpted work investigates precious moments of balance between tradition and modernity. By exploring some limits of possibilities with subtle and radical oppositions, NaHoN questions fragility and solidity, heaviness and lightness, empty and full, air and water, using a various vocabulary of materials, forms, lines, volumes and colours.
NaHoN weaves a link between all these apparent paradoxes of life and substance, as to reach this essential precious moment of balance in her works, whether sculptures or site-specific works, of small or large dimensions, placed outdoors or indoors, such as Equilibre (2000) in front of the Avignon’s Palais de Justice or La Fontaine aux roseaux d’argent (2000) in the Paris’ Musée de Cluny Gardens.
Her work on paper is at once an exploration ground for her sculptural work and a total-free ground, far from restrains due to materials, as to seek after her exploration of paradoxes. We recognize in her drawings the balls and threads from her sculptures, or an organic gush of colours and lines catching a suspended movement. Her intimate, poetic, magical and universal drawings are thus the obvious continuation of her sculpted artwork, pursuing her quest for a perfect balance.
