" Valérie Collart has worked with classical rough bricks and the fine shape of the antique amphorae. The simple nature of the bricks is contradicted and arranged to form not a solid element of a building but an ornamental object – the amphorae vase. The function of the brick is transformed into an aesthetically pleasing object on a pedestal. In Valéries sculptures, the idea is to sustain the stability and solidity whilst simultaneously wanting the objects to reveal their fragility and their precariousness. "
