Valentine Schlegel - Je Dors, Je Travaille
This catalogue offers a unique insight into the life and work of the French artist, sculptor, and ceramist Valentine Schlegel. It features a large iconography, archives, and texts by sculptor and Schlegel specialist Hélène Bertin. Originally published in 2017 on the occasion of an exhibition at CAC Brétigny, it forms a fitting tribute to Schlegel, who can be considered one of the most important ceramists of 1950s. She conceived her works as sculptures inspired by nature, primitive but sophisticated at the same time. An extensive look at her sculpted interiors and architectural elements in plaster, especially the numerous fireplaces she created, is also featured.
