ABOUT / À PROPOS
CÉVÉ was born in Paris in 1951. She specializes in contemporary sculpture and is recognized easily by her style - the pureness of the line and the soft smooth bronze she beautifully creates. As part of her intention, she considers that a sculpture should not only be looked at, but it should make the art-lover feel like he or she is actually feeling it.
Renowned sculptor, CÉVÉ is a member of jury and curator for many exhibitions in France and around the globe. In the past ten years, she has taken part in more than a hundred exhibitions, and she was invited to expose as an exclusive artist nine times where she received twenty-seven distinctions.
In 2013, CÉVÉ was named Chairman of SNBA - the Sculpture Department of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts - first female artist to gain this responsibility. In 2014, she entered the Daubigny Museum (Auvers-Sur-Oise, France) and in 2016, the historical Pompon Museum (Daubigny, France) for a solo exhibition.
CÉVÉ permanently exhibits at four galleries in France: Art Gallery Joel Dupuis, Hardelot (62), Art Gallery Temps del Arts, Megeve (74), Art Gallery “Trois cerises sur une étagère”, Paris 6 (75) and Art Gallery Memorial de Montmartre, Place du Tertre, Paris 18 (75) as well as Sist’Art Gallery, Piazza San Marco, Venezia (IT) and Art&Emotion Fine Art, Lausanne (CH).
With an elevated international presence throughout art collectors and clients, 2018 marks the most essential path in the artist’s career - expanding her works to regions of China and the USA. Her first solo exhibition will take place from October 11th - November 7th in New York’s Chelsea renowned HG Contemporary Gallery. Along with founder and owner, Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, they will exhibit 9 series of numbered sculptures under the theme “Young Forever” inspired by the original masterpiece “Teddy’s”. They consist of 5 different colors and 3 different sizes and they all come in a handcrafted black velvet case, which also offer a pedestal with a personalized plaque. All pieces have been meticulously created, designed and assembled in France. This collection merges CÉVÉ’s legacy of the French craftsmen luxury feel with a touch of innocent childhood.
