VARIATION 120

DAMIEN BENETEAU

VARIATION 120

'Variation 120' is a kinetic sculpture created by the artist Damien Bénéteau.

The Variations series is based on the movement of a pendulum, whose rhythm is determined by the specific weight of each mass. An interdisciplinary theme, shared among mathematics, astronomy, biology and music, variation implies a gap, a way of being different which an animated sculpture can adopt to highlight its singularity. Furtively evoking the contours of a loudspeaker, a musical note or a metronome, these sculptures punctuate the music of time which ticks on and the echo of the beat of life. A slight push on the upper weight will activate the pendulum for a few minutes.

A photographer by training, Bénéteau creates art dedicated to light, capturing it in a way that renders it nearly tangible.

'Variation 120' is a limited edition of 100 pieces.

The Creator

Damien Bénéteau

Damien Bénéteau was born in France in L'Haÿ-les-Roses in 1971. After receiving his degree in photography, Bénéteau joined a press agency, MPA, specializing in portrait photos. During this time he also worked under famed French conceptual artist, Yann Kersalé, compiling photographic reports on subjects such as the Pont de Normandie and “Parabola” in Cahors, France.

Bénéteau then moved to photographing architectural projects and in 1998, founded “Les Cyclopes”, a collective of photographers with a focus on fashion. Images from this collective have been published in magazines and newspapers worldwide. After switching from photographer to light sculptor, Bénéteau’s work garnered the attention of Galerie Mathias Coullaud in Paris, where he has exhibited.

About future directions for his art, Bénéteau says, “I plan to pursue my research on moving light and tiny variations of volumes and materials in minimalist sculpture.” Damien Bénéteau is currently living and working in the Parisian suburb of Ivry-sur-Seine.
