Pascal Billard, stonemason and sculptor, is also a tinkerer with old industrial objects. He likes “the simple mechanics of the 1930s with polished materials such as brass and bakelite". Parts of radios, phonographs, typewriters, bicycles and motorcycles constitute for him materials of choice that he strips down to the smallest bolt.

The tricks and gadgets he obtains in this way tickle his brain and take him on a journey. He appreciates the surreal and imaginary aspects and is part of the retrofuturist or Steampunk movement which he defines “as a fiction, a sort of projection into the future from past years, à la Jules Verne".

Unusual objects

His stone sculptures, into which he integrates these objects, allow him to carry out a synthesis, to connect the threads of a story that is being constructed in his hands and before his eyes. His series of “Passeurs", seven characters in search of identity, oblong in shape, sculpted in limestone, with arched backs, slide and spin, like ghosts, busy with their tasks.
