Sacha Sosno was an influential French artist, born on July 2, 1937 in Marseille, France, and died on December 3, 2013 in Nice. He is known for his unique contributions to contemporary art, innovatively combining sculpture, painting and architecture.
Together with Yves Klein, Arman and César, he is part of Nouveau Réalisme , an important art movement in France in the 60s and 70s.
Sosno began his artistic journey through his neighbor Henri Matisse, who inspired him to develop his skills as a painter and sculptor. He became world famous for his graphic work and for his cube-shaped sculptures of human heads. Sosno's work has been exhibited at the Center Pompidou, Nice Museum of Modern Art and many other museums. In 2003, Guy Pieters Gallery in Knokke organized a major exhibition of his work.
In addition to his graphic work and sculptures, Sosno also influenced the world of architecture with unique designs and concepts that seamlessly integrated art and architecture. A notable example of his architectural work is the " Tête Carrée" library in Nice, France . This striking and innovative structure, with a cube-shaped extension on top of an existing building, reflected Sosno's vision of art being part of public space.
The unique mixed media work "Au-Terre" that we present to you here was exhibited at the NICC in Antwerp in 1975.
