These three extraordinary sculptures from renowned French sculptor Thierry Deroche are a special opportunity to purchase the work of one of Paris’ most inventive artists, whose works have been exhibited in galleries across France.
A former financial executive for important French and American groups, Thierry Deroche’s double life started out in a peculiar Parisian suburb: Dana, a place where human life is practically absent. A place where machinery is omnipresent, almost autonomous.
A few years ago, working as a cost controller in a factory producing automotive pieces, Thierry came across his first call for artistic creation: “My prefab office was at the center of a warehouse. Each morning, I had to go through the central path with shrill noises it was thrilling!” He started collecting pieces, most of all wasted industrial materials, transforming them into robotic sculptures. Pots, industrial tubes, flexible or sheath, find an organic aspect in Thierry’s works.
These three unique robots will take pride of place in your home.
Bidding is still open until the 16th, so hurry!

A never-before-offered opportunity to go behind the scenes of a Moth Mainstage show.
Our flagship Mainstage series has thrilled standing-room only audiences since 1997, with stories by Malcolm Gladwell, Ethan Hawke, Margaret Cho, Annie Proulx, Salman Rushdie, and an astronaut, a pickpocket, a hot-dog eating champion and hundreds more.
The winner will attend a rehearsal before the show, something that has never been offered to the public before. Chat with the storytellers and The Moth’s directors before watching the show in comfort in four VIP seats.
You read right - this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see how we work with storytellers before a show. Go go go!
Hello. I live in Los Angeles, and would love to tell a story at the June 11th show for Fathers. How exactly does the story selection work? Do I show up and participate in a lottery or may I pitch the story? If the show is lottery based: How many people do you select? When does the sign up start? Thank you!
Hey Ashley! The show you’re talking about is a StorySLAM, which is an open mic - so no need to pitch us ahead of time!
As soon as doors open at 7 and up until the start of the show, anyone who wants to tell a story on the theme is welcome to walk up to the stage, fill out a form and put their name in the hat. We only pick ten names each night, and the storytellers are randomly selected throughout the evening.
Before you go, be sure to check out the storytelling tips on our website - and good luck!
