Valérie Legembre - Plastic artist
"It would be a big mistake to pigeonhole Valérie Legembre. Indeed, depending on the pieces you come across, you will constantly be led to reconsider her status.

As a gallery manager dedicated to photography, I have come across many photographers and artists using photography over the past thirty years. I can say that Valérie Legembre is one of the people who has surprised me the most. The reason for this is actually logical, since Valérie positively and skilfully perverts everything she touches..."
