Jérémy Gobé

Artist, Coral Artefact founder & General manager

The work of Jérémy Gobé reflects a vision of an art "in life". He goes to meet workers without works and materials without workers, objects without use and unshaped works. Through his exhibitions in France (Palais de Tokyo, CENTQUATRE-Paris, Bullukian Foundation, etc.) and internationally (Bass Museum Miami, Hangzu China Museum, Shanghai Yuz Museum, etc.), his works propose a reconnection with nature. Like the verbatim of Auguste Rodin: "an art that has life does not reproduce the past, it continues", Jérémy Gobé, inspired by ancient know-how, imagines global solutions to contemporary issues.
