Karn I is part of a small series of pieces inspired by the piles of stone that rise to mark a mountain path, a particular place, or as part of religious practices. In my artistic approach, each stone symbolizes an identity, a history, an event, each time different depending on the hand that placed the stone. Each person is free to give the meaning they wish to the volumes of Karn I.

The work takes the form of 4 volumes held together by 3 wire rods. Materials: turquoise and mauve varnished wire (mesh technique) / galvanized wire for the rods / tin soldering at the top of the rods. Dimensions: the largest volume has a diameter of 23 cm / the smallest has a diameter of 7 cm. Weight: 350 gr.

Mesh technique: the meshes are created from a reel of wire and then fitted into each other by a precise and repetitive gesture. The volumes are then formed according to the meshes that will be added or removed, as well as by their size and the choice of the thread.

After a childhood spent in Berlin where she was introduced to sculpture, Delphine Grandvaux moved to Strasbourg in 1990 to study musicology. In parallel to her activity as a piano teacher, she deepened her modelling technique by taking classes at the Arts Décoratifs and took part in several exhibitions.

In the 2000s, wishing to move towards lighter and airier creations, she directs her work towards wire and develops in 2017 the technique of mesh in her works.

Delphine Grandvaux's artistic path follows a thread. An iron, copper or brass wire, supple and colourful, to which she sometimes associates other materials such as paper, pewter, wool or wood.

The technique of knitting, which consists of creating meshes from a wire and fitting them into each other through a series of small gestures, allows her to explore several facets of volume, to underline its external but also internal forms through a game of transparency and construction. This process leads him towards light and flexible creations that seem to play permanently with the light according to the places where they are arranged.

She finds her inspiration in nature, plant, animal and mineral. "It is an infinite field of exploration. Everything here is a matter of sensation and therefore of creation. I like to explore its multiple facets in search of a balance, beauty or truth other than what is given to see. A bud becomes princely, a pebble bears its history, a tree in the hollow of which its secrets are whispered.... I let myself be guided by my emotions to feed my imagination."

In all of her creations, Delphine Grandvaux likes to evoke things rather than define them, thus emphasising matter and form.
