Lila Farget

Lila Farget studied sculpture at La Cambre Visual Arts, in the studio of Félix Roulin, and recently set up her studio in the Ateliers de Zaventem. Sculpture is a material in action, and molten glass is Farget’s language, giving a physical reality to her thoughts in order to recreate an emotion. The idea of construction is at the centre of her work: to build her sculptures like a vertical building with a succession of assembled layers, superimposed to create volume, form, coloured or not, that she sometimes multiplies and with which she plays to propose a physical experience in space. The house, the arches, the columns, the connections participate in the foundations of her sculptures. Architecture has become her means of expression, her glass sculptures translate an idea, a symbol, a utopia … This language allows her to evoke the openings, the doors which can make accessible, or not, to spaces linking inside and outside. A door is not an obligatory passage, only a direction, a suggested choice that one decides or not to take. The foundation myth acts on memory, on mental activity and allows us to remember and keep track of the lived experience. Like a staging, a set of slices that are stacked one on top of the other or one after the other, these layers of glass resemble geological rock strata, evoking the successive stages of the construction of a life, hanging by a thread, reflecting our fragile biotope.
