Les œuvres s’amusent de la fonctionnalité de l’espace. Des expérimentations plastiques dansent au milieu du salon de l’artiste. En modifiant sans cesse son environnement, Yoan Sorin s’éloigne de la tradition. Des archétypes en sueurs et des ustensiles joueurs apparaissent. La familiarité du langage sportif se déploie. La riche confrontation des matériaux évoque le visage multiple de cet univers connu de tous. Éventail d’un homme non casanier, les jeux praticables sont ici exhibés, défigurés, adorés. Le plasticien semble désorganiser les affrontements de muscles. Son intimité quotidienne, gorgée de mythologies, tente de dialoguer avec son individualité. Des objets identitaires chevauchent son histoire personnelle. La mixité des reliques esquisse un exotisme sportif. Une affirmation se fait entendre, celle d’une idole méconnue qui recompose son rapport au sport.

The works are having fun with the functionality of the space. Some visual experiments dance in the middle of the artist’s living room. By changing constantly its environment, Yoan Sorin takes distance from tradition. Archetypes in sweats and utensils players appear. The familiarity of the language of sports unfolds. The rich materials confrontation evokes the many faces of this universe known to all. Range of non homebody man, practicable games are exhibited here, disfigured, worshiped. The artist seems to disrupt the clashes of muscles. Its daily intimacy, full of mythologies, tries to communicate with his individuality. Identity objects overlap his personal history. The mix of exotic sports relics sketch. An assertion is heard, that of a little-known idol who recompose its relation to sport.
