“When I discovered sculpture, I found a kind of strength that pushed me to define a form that is close to a “mother compartment”, both architecture and character. I don’t do abstract sculpture. I have always looked for the human in sculpture”, Parvine Curie, interviews with Scarlett Reliquet.
The works of Parvine Curie bear two essences, that of monumentality and intimacy. They impose themselves by shapes that attract us and reassure us. If her prac- tice of sculpture has evolved during her rich life of tra- vels and discoveries, she has never ceased to incarnate her great sensibility as a woman and a mother. It is not by accident that many of her works integrate this theme. Theses mothers are real cabin-ships that sym- bolise a transcended mother, powerful and protecting.
In the work Sheltered child (L’enfant abrité) we can particularly find this strength. Her keenness for slender forms brings us to mind a refuge as well as the reassuring comfort of a united family, and we can’t help to have a moving thought for her son, the poet David Martí who died in 2007. The choice of integrating this work to the Art For All collection is not trivial. It proves once more the richness of contemporary sculpture and its impact on our modern society.
