pascal brateau artistic works

pascal brateau explores the house's archetypical shape, its image and perception in the collective mind, mainly in the form of sculptures and/or in-situ installations that question a place or a concept to reveal a hidden story, or the stories' context. Aware of each place's capacity to receive diverse content, he builds a fertile dialogue with a chosen landscape, with the "already there" – whether it be for his art installations, which explore Man's perception with his environment (in particular his housing environment), or for his architectural constructions which are based on the strict, rigorous and elementary reduction of forms in order to privilege the sensuous experiments transmitted by the strength of spaces, material and light.

pascal brateau studied architecture in Nancy (Fr) and Porto (Pt). In 1994, he created the art fanzine "pierre inerte" with Jean Decap in Toulouse. In 1995, he founded a design and interior architecture studio in the Azores Islands. French ''d.p.l.g.'' architect since 2000, he is one of the founders of the studio dbdarchitects and shares his time now between Nancy (Fr) and Berlin (De). Artist/architect who is convinced that today art must occupy space, investing the slightest hidden corner of questioning and affecting all social classes, his pieces call out directly to the viewers, questioning them directly by disturbing their reality. The work takes place in a landscape, whatever it is : rural, urban, public or private, interior or even virtual.
