© Jean-Claude LOUBIERES

Born 1947 in Meurthe-et-Moselle (France).

Lives and works in the Lot.

Born in Meurthe-et-Moselle, Jean-Claude Loubières currently lives and works in the Lot, after a long period spent in the region around Paris. On show in numerous private and public collections in France, USA, Germany, England, etc., he is a plastician who has moved away from sculpture, from the world of the object and the image, in which he created, according to Oscarine Bosquet, “the portrait of things which do not exist”. He then developed in interest in words and letters as signs. In his books as an artist, he questions the problematic coupling of the sign and the senses, playing at deconstructing and reconstructing the relationship between the signifier and the signified, whether textual or visual.

Loubières is an adept photographer of the inventory, a “gleaner of the everyday”, according to his friend Roland Breucker, who picks up little groups of elements to recompose and fix them firmly into another setting, such as a book, collage or even just a space. At the end of the day, he is an artist-editor, who conceives the intellectual object and then produces the actual physical object, making the book not only a medium to be cursorily investigated but one to become totally immersed in.
