Pierre Legrand presents his work exhibited in the Transformation art exhibition of the Auroville Festival at India International Center, Delhi, September 14 – 21, 2012.
“The frontier for a change of consciousness, according to the Mother, lies at the cellular level. By a combined use of writing mantras in a special, evolving script of my invention and by exploring different supports and materials, I aim at reaching convincing translations of experiences occurring at this level, through porosity, lightness and colour.”
Born in Paris, engineer by profession. Artistic journey began after meeting the Mother in 1968. It led to the invention of a script from which all work evolved. Exhibited extensively from 1989 to 2001. Solos include: Weisse Gallery, Cologne, Arp Foundation, Paris, Alliance Francaise, Bangalore & Pondicherry, Resonance, UNESCO, Paris &Light Matter, Auroville.
