#14 – Batimat Building Smarter

Building Puzzling Sculptures with Artist Vincent Fecteau

A block of resin clay, a handful of acrylic paint and a mind submerged in artistic thinking; Vincent Fecteau released another untitled puzzling sculpture in 2014. While a number of exhibitors at Batimat this year expressed their interest in using wood and cement, Fecteau builds with a variety of materials such as pinecones, rubber bands, strings, foam core, epoxy clay and papier-mâachée, among others.

Fecteau has been exhibiting since 1995, including solo shows at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. His largest one-person show to date, You Have Did the Right Thing When You Put That Skylight In at Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland, ended in August.

His work is currently displayed at the Ludwig Forum in Aachen, Germany, as part of a collection of artists representative of contemporary art from 1960 to today. The exhibition, Le Souffleur: Schürmann meets Ludwig, continues through January 31, 2016.
