In his work, Marc Couturier re ects on the passage from the material to the immaterial. In sculptures and drawings imbued with spirituality, he constantly alludes to the dialogue between nature and the divine.
The bond between Marc Couturier and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has remained strong since his artist’s residency
in 1987. For the exhibition at the Seoul Museum of Art, Marc Couturier created several wall drawings reminiscent of his series, Les Dessins du troisième jour, begun in 1991, but regularly enriched, and today comprising several thousand drawings. Verging on abstraction, the drawings evoke the day on which nature was created according to Genesis; having been created before the moon and sun, the drawings of nature stay rigorously black
and white.
