Bio

All my projects are somehow related to aspects of human relationships: our mistakes, our doubts and desires, as well as perceptions we each have of our own realities. My work explores the nature of our psychological relationships with objects, looking for the potential space between reality and the ideal model we aspire to achieve.

Thus, I analyse and question the sense and meaning of actions we undertake, construction and destruction. I am interested in individual repeated attempts, which sometimes lead to failure. Driven by well-intended actions, utopian aspirations or blinded by his ego, the individual reveals his true nature. The impression of impotence generated by such situations and by the individuals themselves simply highlights the fragile and endearing nature of the human being.

My research takes shape through different media, materials, and mountings such as wood, glass, staples, or drawings. My inspiration and influences comes from everyday life and more specifcally from day-to-day objects that condition our lives. My analysis/research is also focused on the use of these objects and the reactions, behaviours that they create, including the affective relationships we may have with them.  

I consider my artistic oeuvre as a conveyor of encounters, an opportunity to link sectors and areas that usually ignore each other (ex: the so-called “noble” and “popular” cultures). I believe it is also a way to examine the position and the function of what we define as contemporary art.

Baptiste Debombourg


Construire à partir du chaos, telle est la démarche paradoxale de Baptiste Debombourg, ce n’est pas la violence qui intéresse l’artiste, mais « ce qui vient après, ce qui se rattache à l’humain, capable du pire comme du meilleur ». Le geste initial de Baptiste Debombourg se manifeste souvent par la destruction d’emballages, de meubles standard ou de verre feuilleté. Le colmatage puis la fabrication d’objets ou d’environnements insolites à partir de ces éléments de rebut constituent l’acte central de sa pratique de sculpteur.
Déchiré, démantelé, le support, auquel l’artiste accorde peu d’importance, est ensuite recomposé et ennobli au travers d’oeuvres radicales et visuellement puissantes qui réinventent notre quotidien avec ironie, distanciation, et parfois violence. Les oeuvres sculptées interrogent la mémoire des lieux, modifient notre perception de l’espace et nos codes de déambulation, et révèlent l’action insidieuse de l’environnement sur notre comportement et l’histoire qui en découle. Son art concilie en une pluralité de gestes, sur-mesure et démesure, éphémère et immuable, trivialité et sublime.

(extrait) Cécile Godefroy, docteur en histoire de l’art, critique d’art et conseillère scientifique pour pour Arte Créative.

Dans son travail essentiellement sculptural, Baptiste Debombourg croise les informations et les matériaux pour des expériences qui révèlent  des  histoires  refoulées,  non  dites  ou  ignorées.  Artiste volontiers « réparateur », il cicatrise les murs, les meubles, les objets tout en en dévoilant des stigmates. Son travail s’impose  en  premier  lieu  par une  monumentalité,  mais  qui  s’avère  paradoxale,  précaire  et  fragile. Un monument comme en convalescence, qui rendrait hommage à la destruction, à la réparation incomplète, voire à la résilience plus qu’à la puissance. Ce jeu de recomposition mobilière, au-delà de son aspect ironique, est nourri d’une réflexion sur le temps, l’histoire, la mémoire et le rêve.

(extrait) Guillaume Désanges, critique d’art et commissaire d’exposition.

Baptiste Debombourg serait un « sociologue du présent » parce qu’il analyse l’écho de notre environnement direct dans l’aventure de nos corps et du temps présent, puisque les pièces qu’il donne à découvrir appartiennent à la vie contemporaine: aux rencontres en bords de chemins montagneux, au mobilier familier, aux trouvailles funestes du quotidien (...) la culture devrait être un processus historique de construction et de libération de soi. Ses oeuvres recouvrent toujours une double identité : la séduction du premier regard et le sous-texte ou plutôt la sous-matière toutes deux induites par l’insistance de la perception. Les hommes passent tandis que la volonté de guerre demeure.

(extrait) Goënièvre Anaïs, écrivaine, critique d’art.
