Artist at home: Yanne Kintgen
The first week of spring invites you to escape from the city, and it's a good time to visit the enchanting home and studio of our multifaceted artist, Yanne Kintgen. Nestled in the heights of western Paris, this family home is full of the paintings, photographs and sculptures she has been creating for nearly 30 years. Trained in applied arts and from a family of artists, Yanne settled in this 19th century millstone house with her husband Olivier, and immediately created her atelier under the superb glass roof which offers her the space she needs for her prolific creation. Sculpting and painting characters around the theme of solitude for many years, she went back to school five years ago, to the Beaux-Arts, in order to give a new breath to her inspiration. The result is a new series of photographs taken around the world on the theme of restlessness, inspired by her readings of Pessoa, a theme that has also led to a series of delicate embroidered drawings and intriguing video sculptures. Discover the home of the fascinating Yanne Kintgen, a generous artist who never stops exploring the boundaries of her imagination, technique and metaphysical considerations.
