Born in Paris in 1960, now living in Bristol, England, Lassalle has made sculpture since she was a child. She grew up in a bohemian artistic environment, her mother is a potter and her father a painter.

The human form has always been Lassalle’s passion. It holds endless possibilities albeit just as pure sculptural form or as a socio-political reflection or comment. Hugely influenced by contemporary dance and physical theatre, she explores dramatic movement as figures fly, fall and dance through space.

I see the human form as the interface between the mental, emotional and spiritual processes inside and the external manifestation of these in the world. I am fascinated by the complexity of the human experience and from this I am compelled and inspired to make sculpture” Lucianne Lassalle
