Eugène Lambourdière (Maurice)

Guadeloupe, 1948

Maurice is an inventor. He doesn’t consider himself an artist. He creates plans and visions of “identified flying objects”—drones propelled by an inexhaustible motive power—and their mechanical components, among other devices. His inventiveness extends to every facet of human knowledge, from medicine to astrophysics. In his drawings and texts he also provides answers to great mysteries, such as the Bermuda Triangle, the cycles of the universe and the fourth dimension. As part of his personal mythology, he introduces esoteric and Masonic elements into physics, and he references sacred texts like the Bible, the Koran and the Torah. Maurice has spent the last thirty-five years of his life living in temporary shelters and squats, as well as on the street.
