Sébastien de Ganay
Multidisciplinary artist Sébastien de Ganay was born in France in 1962. In the 80s he lived in New York City where he studied political science and cinema at Columbia University. De Ganay’s work oscillates between abstraction and functionality in order to challenge sense perception and conformist behaviors. His series “Folded Flat”, made out of bent aluminium sheets, can be conceived as the epitome of his artistic
practice, since de Ganay creates objects that trigger the desire to reach out and unfold them, although they ultimately resist any effort to disclose their secret. They stay put, rigidly striking their pose, impossible to decipher thoroughly. De Ganay has been living and working in Lower Austria for about twenty years.
