Pierre Sgamma's Horse Man is a sculpture full of surprises, intriguing and fascinating. At first glance, it looks like a sort of inverted centaur: a horse's head mounted on a man's body. The horse's head is topped with medallions like magical gri-gri. Imposing, it is enthroned on the small, paunchy body of the biped. We quickly realise that it is a camouflage, that this horse's head is nothing more than a covering for the man, which leaves room for so many suppositions and stories and feeds our imagination...
It is impossible to remain indifferent to the creations of Pierre Sgamma. His sometimes enigmatic creations disturb, move, provoke and even shock. This artist has developed his own plastic language, a singular universe that unfolds with great freedom of expression. All in poetry and sensitivity, Pierre Sgamma's world shakes us up, scratches us and moves us between tearing and appeasement. He transcends established codes by juxtaposing the sublime and the grotesque, candour and perversity. He says: "In the most intense moments of production and creation, I don't work, I play. Each piece is a piece of me, loaded with my experience of love, violence, fears, lacks, desires. I make fun of myself, of this great comedy that is life.
Retour De Voyage loves the interactive aspect of this sculpture. More than a passive spectator, we take part in the work by unveiling it...
