Mathieu Lehanneur presents
Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Paris
Open now until 22 June 2018
Carpenters Workshop Gallery | Paris presents Ocean Memories, an exhibition by designer Mathieu Lehanneur, from 29th March to 22nd June. A continuation of his Liquid Marble series, Ocean Memories evokes a surrealistic and materialised vision of an ocean frozen in its movement.
Designed digitally and made from blocks of white and grey marble as well as polished bronze, these remarkable pieces capture the complex movements of waves and water currents becoming three-dimensional still pictures of Nature’s fifth element.
Through this new collection, Mathieu Lehanneur delves deeper into his exploration of the organic world. The works seem to hesitate between solid and liquid as though suspended in a poetic state of metamorphosis.
“The transition from solid to liquid can only come from the magic of physics. A moment of tilting from static to movement, a passage from the inert to the animated,” Mathieu Lehanneur.
Ocean Memories tables, benches and stools is a combination of energy, movement and strength. At once furniture and sculptures, these fragments of ocean are attempts to crystallise life forever in stone and bronze.
