Biography and career

Colette Billaud




At first, the search for balance has been imposed.


From warm wood, the tensioned arches are put together, are opposing each other, are placed on top of each others, etc.


The piano wire, thin and homogenous, gives more lightness. Small elements punctuate the space set.


Through the discreet impulse of the air and light, those movable structures draw writing into space and reveal a graphi drop shadow.


Currently, I chose Plexiglas for its capacity to capture light by its transparency. Into its mobility, it appears and disappears with the light by releasing the line, which became evasive/imperceptible.


The colour accentuates the light’s game that vibrates on the piano wire, gaining in fluorescence, depending on the magic of the moment.
