This series of installations is a translations in metal from experimentations in plastic I conducted during the coronavirus, deprived of a metal workshop.
For these installations, my starting point is inevitability. This feeling I use is a mix of anxiety and anticipation, you know something is going to happen, you don’t know what or when but it is coming and nothing can be done.
I use this notion as a tool to tune the expression of the work I produce. Rather than being an end goal, it allows me to have the same theme throughout the whole body of work. It is not my intention to force this on the viewer, but rather to create a series of objects that share a common language.
To me these hanging installations are resting in a state of in-betweens, are they going to fall? Rise? Are they dead? Alive? The only certainty is that this situation is not permanent.
The installations are constituted of three hanging objects, arranged in a composition. Triptychs can be combined to create larger installations.
Following are some process pictures of the making of the pieces.
