Lilian Daubisse lives and works in Lille (France). Like objects of curiosity, his pieces move us in their poetry and enigmatic beauty. They invite to the dream, the travel, the search for meaning. Like an archaeologist, this unusual artist awakes the remains of some ancient civilisations whose culmination has been long forgotten; only subsists the evocation power of artefacts offered to our contemplation.
From packaging cardboard, a poor materiel becoming in his hands a substance to be sculpted, carpets, armours and mosaics are revealing a real imaginary archaeology. A contradiction arises between the material, an industrial fabrication for our consuming society, and the hands’ work, through months, as an echo to the craftsmanship of an ethnical costume made for ritual and spiritual ends to be imagined.
