282 In the wonderful and preserved surroundings of La Creuse, Vincent Dubourg chose a land of freedom. Far away from the pressure of space and time, he opens up on contact with the material, in a workshop which he conceived and where he developed a personal practice that restores the dialogue between unique sculpture and design. A unique construction, that the young founders of Carpenters Workshop Gallery wanted to promote beyond our frontiers.

He metamorphoses most familiar items into art pieces, giving them an immaterial dimension, an added soul. Trained in exact metal work technics, passionate observer of cabinetmaking, Vincent Dubourg establishes a dialogue between the two. The paradoxical deconstruction of his art pieces, translates the methodical meaning of his art of building.1Dubourg transforms familiar domestic items, from wardrobes to chairs and ottomans, into art pieces, giving them an immaterial dimension and added soulful quality. trained in metal working techniques and with an innate passion in cabinetmaking, dubourg establishes a union of the two. the paradoxical deconstruction of his art pieces, translates the methodical meaning of his art of construction and craft.
