‘Why add another object to this world when it is overflowing with objects already?’, is a question Stéphane Vigny was asked and that took him into various considerations on his activities as an artist. The works of Vigny almost exclusively consist of converted or twisted objects. His pieces are often outright humoristic, at the same time they are thought-provoking for the viewer. ‘What inspired him to his work and what does he want to tell us?’, are questions we ask ourselves when looking at his transformed objects. Left alone without explanation we can only make an educated guess, but isn’t that part of what makes art interesting and linger in our memory?
