" La vie d'un trait tir? " LIFE OF A DRAWN LINE"
'' Utopia contains the most powerful and mysterious lifeblood in history.
Utopia arises from the past to unveil the horizon. Only those who look towards what we do not see have the opportunity to change, sense and touch the world in a peculiar manner."
Marc Brousse was born in South of France. Graduated from TU Delft (Netherlands), he started end 2015 his artistic path parallel to his profession as an architect. After several years abroad, Amsterdam, Brussels, he is currently living and working in Bordeaux, France.
Marc Brousse based is artistic reflexion on the "art built ",its links with Natures? caractéristics ( Fibonnaci Serie, Golen Ratio,etc) , civilization history, and mythology. Through his travels, Marc Brousse was able to observe the various dialogues between Nature and Architecture. Thus the fundamental values ??of our environment such as architecture, the nature city are a vector of social relationship and unification. Every city, urban artefact is a unique spieces in perpetual evolution, meanwhile keeping its urban genome, like a living organism. He considers that epigenetic principle states that development is the outcome of certain underlying rules plus specific sensitivity to the environment; concept transferable to urban development.
Life is a line, action is a line, thought is a line, each line is a vision on space and the world ? Manlio Brusantin.
Marc Brousse approach from that quote a research on the line, the power of its soul in its mecanims for spatial composition, to see the rise of an abstract infinitesimal construction toward a movement definig a shape, a pattern, a figurativ space. Moreover Marc considers that the line is between two instants. The line represent a quantity of time, describing a movement. Thus the eye which grasp the line catch the time and give him form. Such principle permit the artist to transpose the architectural organism and urban to different scale and transform mesurements in imaginations.
Thus The artist develops un new language named traitillism, by reconditioning a technique discovered by Paul Clodel Cauchard. The artist gets his unique style according to different research concerning the history of the line, the several architecture treaty ( from renaissance to nowadays) and the notions of ?parti et poch? to represent architecture. An architectural writings, a composition of urban calligraphy integrating a specific vision of cities with intriguing architectural matrix juxtaposed with his work on curved and cylindrical perspectives permit to recondition our thinking on cities and our environnement.
His artworks are realised with Ink, charcoal and graphite. Each artwork is drawn free handed to the naked eye.Â Marc add to each artwork a short text, ?instant poetry? permitting to bring into resonance our imaginary with the artworks, and recall for our memory of space.
Since 2019, Marx is exploring new mediums in collabarotion with other artists always with the same goal, to reveal that the founding principles of civilizations are done through urban cultures nourished by symbols, utopias to engrave identity references and generate memory of places. Thus the fundamental values ??of our environment such as architecture, the nature city are a vector of social relationship and unification.
?Everywhere where there is interaction betweenÂ a place, a time and an expenditure of energy, there is rhythm? (H. Lefebvre) Rythm Analysis.
