Visual artist, Sculptor

Katharina Fritsch is a contemporary German sculptor. Born on February 14, 1956, she graduated from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 1984. Her work mixes reality with imagination. To create a surreal imagery that contracts reality and fantasy through its monochrome sculptures. Large-scale animals. People and objects. From her luminous palette, she noticed that the color “equalizes, makes abstract – like a visual sign, an icon. It is important: my work is always at the border between a detailed sculpture and a sign. Fritsch’s work is often described as disturbing. Containing slight changes in representation that alter the viewer’s perception. From reality and highlight the falsified imitation of the life of the work.

Project development during social isolation due to the covid-19 pandemic. The starting point is a reflection on the moment when we live collectively. Widespread
panic. The supermarket works, products out of stock.

Don’t pan (dem) ic.

 

As the President has declared a state of emergency. Vitor Malva cannot leave his home. Only in certain exceptional situations. In the few times he went out to walk his dog or go buy food. He spread copies of the work with the message written all over the city! Don’t pan (dem) ic.

Pascale Archambault 

Sculptor

Location : Canada

 

 

 

 

 

Since 1976, Pascale Archambault has experienced wood carving. Ceramics and stone. Devoting himself almost exclusively to the latter. Archambault’s art is figurative. Represented in its entirety or in fragments, which plays a decisive role. Dotted with references to the history of sculpture. His works reflect social considerations. Regarding, acts of violence. Contemporary conflicts and, on the other hand, the pleasures of life. Her pieces constantly oscillate between two contradictory poles, one of which, the euphoric connotations, focuses on beauty. Well-being and desire. The other, closer to dysphoria, shows ugliness. Anxiety and suffering.

Miles Johnston was born in the United Kingdom in 1993. He spent the early years of his childhood in Brunei, Borneo. Which, had a major impact on Him. The totally different environment gave early intuition that there was no real “normal”. In hindsight. He was always interested in anything that could transform his perception of the mundane. From mathematics. Physical. Philosophy and art. He always wanted to see the world around him as if it was the first time. Also, he always felt the sublime strangeness. Terrifying and impressive to be.
