This concept has a particular place in my creation, which comes as a reflection of the relations between human beings and their own product. The dynamics of the conception of “Contemporary Fossils” is made up of 2 processes.
First is my curiosity and engagement with the deformity of the plastic that creates strange and unconscious shapes, that makes us believe they are contemporary ‘neoclassic’ forms of our era…a bit later the fossils of our civilization.
Second process implicates these products of creation in a dialogue with urban spaces, architecture and nature. You cannot not feel the irony everywhere in “Contemporary Fossils” in their relationship with nature, background, its playful illusion of size, material and colors.
But beyond this, beyond the ideas and social engagement, there is something purely artistic in them. It is the artistic will, the unconscious, the unintentional, to deform, transform that which is obvious into something recyclable that is more intimate in each person’s imagination. It is an act of empathy.
