“I got into sculpture at the end of 1989, during the exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, where I went to draw on its weekly closing day. There was a small Cycladic sculpture that I liked. I gazed at it for the four months of the exhibition. When I got back to Burcy, I picked up a knife in the kitchen. And in the remains of a broom handle, I began to carve a body, I didn’t know how to create the head, I sculpted a bird’s head looking upwards. Since then, I’ve forgotten everything. (…)” Jean-Michel Folon, Lettre to Pierre Alechinsky, late May 1995.
