    MARATHONIENNE (The MaraThon runner)
    Edition "Art For All" by Galerie Loft Paris

    1981 - Ed.2020, Black painted cast metal,
    H.16 x 11,5 x 6 cm, 145 grams
    Edition of 1000 copies,
    Signed and numbered,
    Dim. of the box : 20 x 14,5 x 9 cm.

    Initially conceived in 1981 as a 6 meter high monumental sculpture, Marathonienne (the marathon runner) has now become one of Philippe Hiquily’s most iconic sculptures. At the center of many cultural events in Europe and all over the world and revealed to a wide audience thanks to the American television series Billons, she impresses us by the softness of her curves and the eroticism of her figure that contrasts with the rigor of her composition (the perfect geometry of a circle divided in 3 angles of 120°on a central axis). This modern sport woman immortalised in an ultimate moment of grace, both strong and untameable, is rendered vulnerable by the stolen moment in which she seems suspended. Generally presented in monumental formats, the marathon runner has found its way into a small format for the Art For All collection, thus proving again that the grace of her shapes has no limits.

Philippe Hiquily

France Born in: 1925 Bestsellers Masterpieces
French sculptor, born in 1925 in Paris. He joined the school of fine arts in Paris from 1948 to 1953 and received the prize for criticism in Paris’ Biennale in 1959. He works with the sculptors Jean Tinguely and Germaine Richier, with whom he made pedestal culptures. He exhibited for the first time in 1955 at the Palms Gallery in Paris, then Contemporaries Gallery in New York in 1959, where he met the great names of American art (Leo Castelli, Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Jasper Jones, Isamu Noguchi ...). The success came quickly and the prestigious museums in New York (MOMA and the Guggenheim) buy some of his works.
He exhibited regularly at the Salon de Mai and Young sculpture in Paris.

Starting from 1960, he created furniture. The creation of bronze began around 1980. They were exposed for the first time in 1986 at the Galerie Patrice Trigano in Paris.
The sculptures of HIQUILY are characterized by a pervasive eroticism, that translates into a smooth universe filled with elements borrowed from nature (antennas, horns, insect legs ...). The search for formal balance is obvious. He works mostly from recyclable materials.
