Anthony Duchêne

Born in 1976

Lives and works in Marseilles

For the past several years, Anthony Duchêne has developed a work based on sculpture, drawing and objects, and directly inspired by cooking and its history.
Merging the world of gustative and olfactory sensations with that of hunting and nature, his works evoke hybrid figures and mutations of plant species that inspire him to create new combinations.
His latest exhibition, entitled Le repas des interdits (The meal of interdicts), included hybrid utensils inspired by the book Les Gastronomes de l’extrême (Extreme gourmets), as well as a series of “Nose glasses” – tasting glasses each matching the nose of its user.
