Forlane 6 Studio - Underwater Sculpture

Branche

Water is the tool that allows us to transform ordinary objects inside a transitory and suspended space. When immersed in this element, materials can be displaced using their buoyancy, currents or air pressure. The movements of the sculptures participate to its metamorphose and recalls natural qualities.

Blow Dry

Our obsession with the underwater world informs these projects. To transform a stable form into a malleable and unpredictable one it becomes necessary for it to be submerged. At the intersection of different mediums, these works are made to leave room for the unexpected. Specific situations are created where the inanimate can become alive. It is through these slow motions that ordinary materials become uncanny and poetic.

Take Off.

Airspray

The depths of the sea are historically seen as a place of disappearance and oblivion. However this singular and hostile space is strongly influenced by human activity, and will certainly have an increasingly large impact upon our civilization in the fields of science and energy resources.

Chaise.

The Perils of "Secret" Projects!

This last couple of months has been absolutely unbearable for someone who enjoys sharing the progress of works online. First came the Caledonian Sleeper cufflink commission, then came my work with "The Contemporary Jewellery Exchange" for Jan Donaldson, which I can't show until the 1st of May! The good thing is that I can now reveal the…See More
