My sculptures try to represent this flow of unstable matter, these forces in movement, stopped in time and space, similar to a wave stopped in its course by the frost, or a moment fixed by a photographic image. I like to give the illusion of this suspended time, between what has been (the form in development) and what will become (the imaginary continuation of the unfolding of the material). Close to abstraction, they thus challenge the unconscious and the imagination of the spectator, who is free to receive them and to project what he wants.
Glass remains underestimated in contemporary creation, either because it is assimilated to a craft activity requiring the acquisition of a demanding know-how, or because its plastic possibilities are ignored. Since the beginning of my career, I have encountered this conventional divide, between the so-called "liberal" arts and the "mechanical" arts, "major art" and "minor art", contemporary art and arts and crafts, conceptual art and material art. More than overcoming such a divide, applying oneself to the "glass work", a technique of slowness and weight, is also for me to resist a world regulated by the acceleration of exchanges and the visualization of reality. - Juliette Leperlier, May 2022
