Laurent Belloni, born in 1969, is a French sculptor. He studied for four years the techniques of bronze, and is graduated from chasing and bronze mounting. He spent six years in various workshops of the Susse Foundry in Paris. Laurent Belloni presented his works in numerous group and solo exhibitions since 1995 in France and Belgium. He participated in sculpture symposia in Lebanon in 2001 and in Bahrain in 2003.
The sculptures of Laurent Belloni are strained to an abstract dimension, not anecdotal. They do not tell stories, do not address topics, not show any theme. In this work, the anatomy becomes more schematic; it serves as a minimum context of event space, support. His treatment is in line with a more direct apprehension and brightest affects. In his first sculptures, energy is externalized, overflowing. It is given in its exuberant entirety. However, it is broken and contained in the most recent.
Each of its rooms is sort of a condensed life. The sculpture of Laurent Belloni is stimulating, it mobilizes. (Text taken from "The tension of becoming," David Lollia, exhibition at the Hotel du Vendée department, 1997)
