La coulée et le parapluie
- Date 2018
The open-air gallery contributes to enhancement of bronze activities in Inverness, Qc. Featuring artists, Fonderie d’art and Atelier du bronze foundries bear the cost of sculptures and CDEI provides the infrastructure.
46 x 75 x 50 cm.
Sculptors use to carve solid blocks, make up components or mould objects. I am interested in all these specific technicalities, which brings as much langages. For several years, I use to make spheres.
I have built several wooden domes which rely on clever mortise and tenon joints. As foundry components, these supporting parts now turn into paths of the inflowing melt towards periphery. Instead of being removed after casting, the exoskeleton remains as an addition to the dome, like umbrella frame.
