The artist Jean-Luc Vilmouth, (1952-2015) was born in Creutzwald in France. His work uses various media – installation, photography, sculpture and video – and functions by series, particularly the series of “nuclei” that includes the Saint-Vincent-les-Fort work. In his first projects, Vilmouth occupied abandoned and dilapidated places. His works were reactions to the places. are thus reactions to these places. He later focussed his work on everyday objects by a technique that aims to give them a new dimension by distorting them and staging them, thereby questioning the relationship that we have with them and their place in our environment.
“What interests me in the objects that surround us is their origin, their design… I think that an object enables us to understand an entire social evolution…”
In 2011, for the VIAPAC contemporary art trail, Jean-Luc Vilmouth created Comme un noyau, un voyage de l’esprit [Like a nucleus, a journey of the spirit] a work installed in the fort of Saint-Vincent les Forts, which was designed by Vauban.
