Presentation

Mattia Listowski, born February 28, 1987 in Paris, is a French sculptor, designer and photographer, of multiple origins (France, Italy and Poland).

Coming from a family of creators, he studied at ESAG Penninghen from 2005 to 2008.

Mattia sculpts narrative architectures from the raw material of concrete, characterizing our symbolic relationship to memory, the ruin of ideas; and encapsulates cozy scenes of these magical places with medium-format film camera photographs, crystallizing an equivocal memory on the surface of the concrete. He thus revolutionizes a temporal paradigm through the study of our physical relationship to space, in a crossed story between personal history, history of art and great civilizations.

His work uses the formal language, techniques, tools and representations of architecture, exploring matter and light. It combines a conceptual approach, industrial know-how and artisanal implementation, exposing from a metaphorical point of view our dual relationship to the world: the invisibility of being in the global mass, in contradiction with our primordial essence of sensitive individual.

A romantic dialectic of travel, anthropological and picturesque, in a universe putting in constant tension the ephemerality of light (brought by the notion of events and sensitivity) and the eternity of stone (supported by the notion of memory) by confronting us with our own memory, our unique memories.Mattia Listowski, born February 28, 1987 in Paris, is a French sculptor, designer and photographer, of multiple origins (France, Italy and Poland).
