Conversation with French artist Jérémy Gobé

Jérémy Gobé is a young associate artist of CENTQUATRE-Paris who has been showing his sculptural work across France (Palais de Tokyo, Musée des Beaux Arts de Lyon, etc.) since he graduated from L’École des Arts Décoratifs. For his first artist residency abroad, he brought his knitting machine to Miami where he attended a four week program at the Fountainhead Residency. His stay led to a personal show at the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, from the 24th of January to the 28th of February. We met him to talk about his work and his personal feelings on the city of Miami.
