David Rabinovitch was born in 1943 in Toronto, and now lives in New York. A sculptor, he is interested in “constructions” and “metrics”, the measure and rhythm that connect music, poetry and architecture and create unity in everything. He studied Ottonian churches of the Germanic Holy Roman Empire, which, in the 10th century, took part in the dawning of Romanesque architecture. David Rabinovitch shares the minimalists’ interest in exploring sculpture’s aim of interacting with the spectator in time and space.
As part of work done inside the Cathedral of Notre-Dame du Bourg in Digne-les-Bains between 1995 and 1998, David Rabinovitch was commissioned to create his work Aménagement liturgiques, vitraux [Liturgical refurbishment, stained glass windows].
