Jean-Luc Vilmouth, French artist, Died at 63

Jean-Luc Vilmouth was born March 5, 1952 in Creutzwald and died on December 17, 2015, in Taipei.

He was a French sculptor.

Vilmouth taught at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

He had Trained in Fine Arts in Metz.

Jean-Luc landed in England in the 1970s, where he immersed himself in the New English sculpture, Tony Cragg and Bill Woodrow.

Jean-Luc worked under VIAPAC, where he installed a model of Vauban of Saint-Vincent-les-Forts on the path to the site, vis-à-vis the Fort.

Within this model, there was a complete representation, the image of the original architecture.

His work brought visitors to perceive sculpture as the nucleus from which the fort was built.

This type of work reflects on architecture and a working memory, inciting the public to mentally reconstruct the architecture of the fort by operating a back and forth between two levels in humans themselves.

Jean-Luc Vilmouth has created a work highlighting the sites and its history, as part of the redevelopment of the weapons Manufacture by Chatellerault.

He also compared the link between home and its occupants, and even between people.

However, his work lead him to investigate public places, cafes, museums and natural landscapes, this “enhancer” adds, shifts, moves objects and weaves through them, this lost or distended tie.

Jean-Luc Vilmouth passed away at 63 yrs old.
