Denis Tricot


French artist Denis Tricot gently transforms streets and squares with his elegant wooden sculpture installations. His method is simple: using quantities of three metre long flexible planks of poplar wood he builds lines, waves and arches that weave their way through streets, squares and parks. Inspired by the architecture that surrounds them; his sculptures forge memorable pathways of flowing curves, gently turning the familiar sites of a town into temporary art galleries.

They are stunning in rural and urban places alike, and generate enormous public response while they’re being built and once created.


Fire & Music Event:

To mark a moment in a spectacular yet contemplative way, Denis Tricot’s sculptures can be burnt to live music. His long time collaborator singer and cellist Vania Dombrovszky provides the haunting and melancholic soundtrack. Collaborations with other musicians & perfomers are also possible.
