Jacques VIEILLE



Jacques Vieille was born in 1948 in Baden-Baden, Germany. He now lives and works in Paris and in Lot-et-Garonne, France.

During the 1980’s Jacques Vieille spent some time at the Villa Médicis in Rome where he found both inspiration from and significant interest in its architecture and surroundings. He participated in numerous group exhibitions in Europe and in the USA, as well as in the 1989 edition of Les Cent jours d'art contemporain de Montréal. In 2001, he presented his works at the Kerguéhennec art centre (Morbihan, France).

As a multidisciplinary artist, Jacques Vieille initially focused his attention on architecture before specializing in gardens and scenery. He designs in situ installations while exploring, in a more didactic manner, architecture and its history. Abandoning himself increasingly to spontaneity, Vieille has, for the past 15 years, focused on a more concrete art form and has been experimenting with objects randomly found and that are fraught with unexpected meaning. Taking advantage of cultural, archeological and sculptural techniques, Vieille creates installations and interventions that present a wealth of references and that call upon the five senses. While integrating materials that are increasingly complex and technologicalinto his massive works, the artist still maintains a rhetoric that is associated with architecture through an incessant dialogue between nature and culture.
