This time last year I was privileged to spend time with artist Bernar Venet at his newly inaugurated Foundation at Le Muy in the south of France. The result of hours of interview was this cover feature for Sculpture, which also marks Venet’s receipt of the International Sculpture Center’s Lifetime Achievement Award, along with Kiki Smith. The Award will be presented at a ceremony in New York City on Monday 29 February 2016.

I’d like to thank Bernar Venet for his generosity in welcoming me to the Foundation and answering my questions, as well as his team in New York and Le Muy. Thanks too to Glenn Harper, the Editor at Sculpture, for this opportunity.
