Cécile Geiger


My approach is intuitive: the sculpture is the metamorphosis of a sheet of steel, cut, folded and welded into abstract forms that develop in response to a space or sensation. I do not make models beforehand. Techni­cally, this piece plays with the ideas of balance and ambiguity, at once supple and rigid, light and heavy and perfectly poised in space, accentuating the shadows and light that reflect from its surface. Traces of the manmade process remain intentionally; a human sensitivity radiates.

My challenge was to create something light from a heavy material, almost as if practicing origami with steel, but without the geometric constraints of paper folding. I wanted the final product to look as if it had been stretched and opened out. Its transformation into a light fixture, floating in space, was an obvious progression; I wanted to be able to read the interior and exterior spaces and the light emanating from the bulb enhanced this possibility, illuminating surfaces and casting shadows.
