French, 20th century, female.

Born 1926; died 1993.


Bir's sculptures are generally composed of metal leaves folded skilfully like Japanese 'origami', a creative technique evident in the titles of her works: Folded Square dated 1988, Folded Triangle dated 1989. After completion of the folding process, her sculptures assume the character of birds on the alert or about to take flight.

She regularly exhibited in Paris at the Salon
