Thierry Deroche

The double life of Thierry Deroche began in a singular place, in the suburbs of Paris. Dana, a space where the human is almost absent and the machine ubiquitous, autonomous. A few years ago, the controller of the time, knew in this factory of auto parts his first invitation to the creation. He began to recover some parts, often industrial waste, which today are transformed into robotic rebuses ...


 He has now exchanged his briefcase for a toolbox. In his hands, the metal parts are assembled, bolted, and screwed to find a second life, reincarnated in playful and unique sculpture looking like ROBOTS. In his imagination, the toaster becomes head, the umbrella stand becomes body, the nozzle of boilers become arms and legs ... Roboted, Robbyted & Co are beautiful, are useless, no strident noises, no blinding lights, just one a glow of tenderness, nostalgia and a touch of irony.
