The Gleaning Ship
Born in 1986 at Brest (France), lives and works in Paris (France).
Jean-Marie Appriou’s sculptures personify man’s relationship to the nourishing soil by drawing inspiration from the ancestral gestures of sowers, gatherers, and foragers.
They also suggest the idea of a crossing between worlds. Crossing imaginary fields, the two figures in the boat forage the plants left behind in the wake of the harvesters.
