Biscuit(s)

For the new exhibition “Biscuit(s)” at the Galerie de Sèvres, the artist Victor Fleury Ponsin has created a visual illustrating the virtuosity of the manufacture’s creations.

Invited by the Manufacture de Sèvres, Victor Fleury Ponsin has created a graphic work on the façade of the Parisian gallery, which takes as its starting point the production of a biscuit within the Manufacture. In fact, to make Pygmalion and Galatea by Étienne Maurice Falconet, the workshops had to use more than thirty moulds that were assembled with each other. The visual renders the invisible visible by highlighting, with the help of a line, the location of the moulds and thus the complexity and beauty of the Manufacture’s know-how.
The “Biscuit(s)” exhibition brings together nearly seventy sculptures, from the 18th century to the present day, as evidence of the variety, finesse and virtuosity of the modelling of Sèvres biscuits, which have contributed to the legend of the Manufacture.
