Statement

Leblon makes installations, objects, photographs or films that transform the function and perception of space. Through simple interventions, he establishes an emotional relation with interior spaces and the domestic environment, creating feelings of uneasiness and imperceptible tension in the viewer. Reflections around dual concepts such as inside and outside, surface and volume, model and object, movement and stagnancy, use and lack of function, form and content are found in his works. In the confrontation with form and its meaning, Guillaume Leblon mostly draws on abstraction, thus preventing simple classification. His objects and installations are paradoxical reconstructions from life and art, that contain inherent references that are never clearly articulated.
