Art Madrid'24 – Cedric Le Corf – La Mare au diable (2017)
about Cedric Le Corf
Bühl, (Alemania), 1985
Cedric Le Corf was born in 1985 in Bühl, near Baden-Baden (Germany). He graduated with honors in 2009 from the École Européenne Supérieure d’Art in Lorient, France. Imbued with a Rhenish heritage, from Dürer to Grünewald, and schools of polychromed wood, he penetrated the laceration of German Expressionism and the quietude of Corot’s Vexin landscapes. Then, as a member of the Casa de Velázquez in Madrid, he discovered the Spanish Baroque and its cult of death, its painted sculptures by Juan de Juni and Alonso Berruguete. And finally, the eternal return to Celtic lands, where, alongside the porz amaro (the gates of death), the famous danse macabre of Kernascléden,etc. he puts down his bag and opens his workshops, an imaginary museum in the colors of the «Sarrazin». A return to the source can only be achieved if a poet originally sings, and if he has had to take this detour, the foreign path, in order to begin again without end.
