For his first solo gallery in Japan, Xavier Veilhan explores statuary and the presence of bodies in space (which he presents in both two and three dimensions), abstraction, marquetry and drawing. Veilhan is particularly interested in music and sound, which we can see in his delicate mobile statues and even his mathematical representations of the human form. For the latter subject, he often reduces the body to a series of planes or a few contours. He shares, “The works I create are more a visual device than they are an end in themselves.”
