'My work is attached to the appearance of a poetic moment connected to light and silence – It seems to me more appropriate to use the expression "poetical objects" rather than sculptures'
Pierre Marie Lejeune

Born in 1954, Pierre Marie Lejeune defines himself as a sculptor-draughtsman. Winner of a « Villa Medicis hors les murs » scholarship in 1983, he spent one year in Luxor. Since then he has unceasingly developed a repertoire of shapes and forms that are akin to the written language of a virtual alphabet. His materials of predilection are steel, glass, light and water.

Recently, Pierre Marie Lejeune has exhibited at the Mamac (Nice), at the Arsenal in Metz, at the National Museum of China (Peking), and has presented groups of monumental sculptures in public spaces in the towns of Shanghai, Peking, Metz, Boulogne-Billancourt and Auvers-sur-Oise.

In the autumn of 2008, he exhibited at the Tournay-Solvay park (European Foundation for Sculpture) in Brussels and in Sofia, Bulgaria at the National Gallery.

Pierre Marie Lejeune has realized numerous projects and commissions in Europe (Germany, Belgium, Italy, France), in the United States and China. His work is regularly shown in important galleries in both Europe and China.
