Parvine Curie was born in Nancy in 1936, of French-Iranian origin. After her studies she left to visit Europe and decided to settle in Barcelona in 1957, discovering Catalan art. She practiced sculpture as an autodidact, following the advice of sculptor Marcel Marti with whom she had a son, David in 1959. In 1970, she moved to Paris and presented at the young sculpture salon, the work Première Mère, which marked the sculptor François Stahly. He invites her to come and work alongside him at the collective workshop in Crestet (Vaucluse). Parvine learns the basics of the trade, sculpts wood and stone. She married Stahly in 1975 and subsequently carried out numerous public commissions. Her work, which was initially more hieratic, then evolved into a more dynamic style. Her sculptures, between figures and architecture, and strongly inspired by the places she visited, are marked by pure lines and materials and testify to her constant desire to question space and light.
