For Philippe Mougin, it all started when he heard Mr. Benoît, his teacher, "a guy from Marseille", tell him "Here, in this establishment, you can" do everything "!" He was then 16 years old and his eyes, that day, opened wide, wide open: "All these machines, these tools, in these workshops where the bittersweet vapors of metal floated, it was madness! Even that I was dizzy ... "
After his CAP, he continued, with the same desire to play with fire, to assemble metal parts together by means of fusion. In this almost "alchemical" process which causes one thing to transform into another, these shapes in her head have gradually become cupboards, loveseats, stools, tables, sofas ....
And then again after? Quite simply, encounters and chances. Avignon first, "the theater city", with, in summer, these writers, actors, directors, sound engineers, and other creators ... and the discovery of the things of the spirit that accompanies it. He became a set designer for the show for 16 years. Then, once again, opening his eyes wide, he slips, slowly, from the utilitarian object to the sculpture to abandon himself to it today, completely. The memory of a visit to this Savoyard sculptor whose delicate works still make him dream today, was undoubtedly not for nothing in this process of transformation ...
