Born in 1935 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Jim Dine lives and works in Paris, Göttingen (Germany) and Walla Walla (USA). Pioneer of the happening and associated with the Pop Art movement, he has always followed a unique path. He experiments extensively with different techniques, working with wood, lithography, photography, metal, stone and paint. The tool and the creative process are just as important as the finished work. The artist explores the themes of the self, the body and memory, drawing on a personal iconography made up of hearts, veins, skulls, Pinocchio and tools.

Poésie der Pflanze (Poetry of Plants) – Photos by Karl Blossfeldt and Jim Dine - group show



The exhibition "Poesie der Pflanze’ (’Poetry of Plants”) presents Kalr Blossfeldt’s (1865-1932) works in conjunction with around 40 heliogravures by the American artist Jim Dine (1935).  


Even though the two artists are generations apart and represent very different artistic approaches, their works make it clear that the mystery of nature, its magic as well as its regularity and order, is a never-ending source of creative inspiration.

Thru The Stardust, The Heat On the Lawn (Claude) - FIAC Hors les Murs



IN COLLABORATION WITH MANUFACTURE DE SÈVRES

In 2016, Jim Dine was invited for the second time by the Manufacture de Sèvres to develop a new series of works. Working in a studio loaned by the museum, Jim Dine has been creating a spectacular ensemble of ten vases/sculptures in glazed stoneware. Baked and glazed on the premises, with technical expertise and tradition of the Sèvres team, these sculptures integrate his handwritten poem as well as sculpted lids made of tools cast in bronze. They offer a reflection on the power of words - poems as vessels - creating connections between tools and language, the sensuality of clay and the harshness of the distorted bronze. They will be presented in the Tuileries garden as part of the Fiac programme Hors les murs (Fiac Outdoors). Jim Dine was born in 1935 in Cincinnati. He lives and works between Paris, Göttingen (Germany) and Walla Walla (USA).
