Xavier Veilhan

Veilhan uses high-tech industrial techniques to emulate the original epitome of human craftsmanship—the statue. The pieces are intentionally called “statues,” a term that has fallen out of use within contemporary art production as the monumentalisation of human beings has become almost obsolete. The sculptures are renderings of people in the artist’s proximity—friends, family and colleagues.
