Binette, Matthieu

Matthieu Binette’s artistic approach takes form in 1999, when he develops an unusual technique for creating his sculpture. Binette takes recycled metal wires, and melts them “drop by drop.” It is the accumulation of these metal drops that creates his figures and gives them their unique texture and elongated form.
