Yaz was born from the creation of a print in 2016 entitled "Ethnie Emeraude". It is a geometric composition representing the assembly of two circles open on a quarter. Arranged according to a symmetry of horizontal axis, the shape then resembles a kind of character, feet on the ground and arms raised, like an ethnic totem pole.

The volumeing of this figure was done by bending and soldering 4mm thick square brass bars, hot patinated with copper nitrate (giving shades ranging from dark brown to emerald green). Duplicated, and turned over, the two sides are connected by their four corners thanks to bars of identical thickness and length.

Wishing to give substance to the "soul" of this complete form, the artist drilled an infinity of small holes along each inner circle arc, and connected them point by point with a blue nylon thread, faded with bleach and darkened with graphite. Then gradually materialized, the shape of two open cones, growing and decreasing, bringing rhythmic and lightness to the initial structure.

This sculpture joins his work around symbolic writing, the Berber alphabet called Tifinagh, and one of whose letters: "yaz" strongly reminded him of the shape of this sculpture. It was therefore named after her.

Born in Paris into a family of multi-talented artists, Marie Guerrier, 26, specializes in metalworking. Her universe is inspired by nature and the world of minerals that have fascinated her since childhood. Attentive to the world of Science and Art, she develops her know-how by sculpting the material with patience, rigour and technical requirements. Geometry, by its universal and timeless beauty, occupies a central place in his work. Used as a graphic and symbolic bias, it is also an essential construction tool. In search of balance and poetry, his work challenges the "inanimate" elementary geometric figures by giving a tangible representation of hollowed, split, duplicated forms, arranged in such a way as to reveal sensitive compositions. Through the manufacture of metal, wood, wax and concrete, these forms come to life in unexpected ways, inviting the spectator to touch them. At the border between design and artwork, the artist plays with scales and questions usage. From jewellery to sculpture, the full and empty spaces interact in a harmony that is both subtle and obvious. The material, tested with respect, is sublimated down to the smallest detail.
