    Back to the roots

    Daniel Depoutot spent a large part of his childhood and youth in Nancy, where he regularly meets up with his family and loyal friends. For several decades now, he has been developing an all-encompassing plastic work (a sort of "totalGesammtkunstwerk") in vast premises made available to him by the late Coop Alsace group in Strasbourg .

    Daniel Depoutot
    Back to the roots

    Daniel Depoutot spent a large part of his childhood and youth in Nancy, where he regularly meets up with his family and loyal friends. For several decades now, he has been developing an all-encompassing plastic work (a sort of "totalGesammtkunstwerk") in vast premises made available to him by the late Coop Alsace group in Strasbourg .

    He makes unlikely assemblages, crazy machines, art!
    Daniel Depoutot never ceases to pursue his plastic research in his studio, finding inspiration in the jerks and mechanical aspects of movement. He is a creator of hybrid beings. These are made from objects gleaned from garbage dumps, assembled and brought to life by a power supply whose rudimentary nature contributes to the coherence of the installation.


    He has presented his work at the Hanover World Fair, where he designed and produced sets and costumes for a contemporary opera (libretto by Annette Schlunz), and in Kinshasa, where he works with street children. He has exhibited in Barcelona, Thessalonica, Prague, Pfalzweyer, at the Musée d'Art Moderne et Contemporain in Strasbourg, and almost everywhere else, and this is just the beginning.



    At Galerie Lillebonne, he returns to his roots, drawing closer to the famous "Dada of his childhood" (Paul Gauguin), presenting his latest research on the mother machine, the weighted motor clock, and returning to nudes and color. A great moment in his artistic career!
