La Courbe de la ritournelle | Always able to create links between art, society and country - as well as hybrids between dance, theater, architecture, film - Jan Kopp uses different forms of artistic expression without favoring any: installations, performances, films, videos, painting and photography. He set up a permanent dialogue between images created and images borrowed, using - by simple means - the juxtapositions of meaning and reversal of situations.
A major exhibition comes from him being devoted to the abbey of Maubuisson (Val d'Oise) in 2011.

La Courbe de la ritournelle
Jan Kopp is an artist who has the gift to use a wide range of media skillfully exploiting the best properties. So the field of polymorphism and the multiple meanings that we undertake. Find ... monochrome drawings by Jan Kopp give rise to objects in reserve. Subtlety and delicacy of line combined with unique viewpoints tell us already that the viewing angle chosen by the artist is most revealing about his approach.
This book is a journey between different realizations of Jan kopp including:
- A structure built with proliferative ephemeral baguettes dried. This material recovery is particularly interesting because it is very hard and has a dimension of ecological recycling.
- A monumental installation comprised of 11 Foucault pendulums, suspended, the oscillation observed over a long period, shows the effects of rotation of the Earth. Each pendulum consists of a sphere suspended at the end of a steel wire dangling over a base studded with glass beads.
