Philippe Hiquily

French sculptor, born in 1925 in Paris. He joined the school of fine arts in Paris from 1948 to 1953 and received the prize for criticism in Paris’ Biennale in 1959. He works with the sculptors Jean Tinguely and Germaine Richier, with whom he made pedestal culptures. He exhibited for the first time in 1955 at the Palms Gallery in Paris, then Contemporaries Gallery in New York in 1959, where he met the great names of American art (Leo Castelli, Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Jasper Jones, Isamu Noguchi …). The success came quickly and the prestigious museums in New York (MOMA and the Guggenheim) buy some of his works. He exhibited regularly at the Salon de Mai and Young sculpture in Paris. Starting from 1960, he created furniture. The creation of bronze began around 1980. They were exposed for the first time in 1986 at the Galerie Patrice Trigano in Paris. The sculptures of HIQUILY are characterized by a pervasive eroticism, that translates into a smooth universe filled with elements borrowed from nature (antennas, horns, insect legs …). The search for formal balance is obvious. He works mostly from recyclable materials.

法國雕塑家,1925年出生於巴黎。他於1948年至1953年加入巴黎美術學院,並於1959年在巴黎雙年展上獲得批評獎。他與雕塑家Jean Tinguely和Germaine Richier合作,並與他一起製作了基座雕塑。他於1955年首次在巴黎的Palms畫廊展出,然後於1959年在紐約的Contemporaries畫廊展出,在那裡他遇到了美國藝術的偉大名字(Leo Castelli,Rauschenberg,James Rosenquist,Jasper Jones,Isamu Noguchi ......)。成功來得很快,紐約著名的博物館(MOMA和古根海姆)購買了他的一些作品。他經常在巴黎的Salon de Mai和Young雕塑展出。從1960年開始,他創造了家具。青銅器的創作始於1980年左右。它們於1986年首次在巴黎的Galerie Patrice Trigano曝光。 HIQUILY的雕塑的特點是普遍的色情,轉化為一個光滑的宇宙,充滿了從大自然借來的元素(天線,角,昆蟲腿......)。尋求正式平衡是顯而易見的。他主要使用可回收材料。
