The French artist Emeric Chantier creates a corpus of plant and mechanical sculptures highlighting the introspective feeling perceived by the human face to the origins and the future of Nature.
By experiencing the “model making”, Emeric Chantier crosses the molding technique and collage to explore industrial materials such as polyurethane foam, or natural elements like ground and wood. By this process, the sculptor tries to awaken again the collective consciousness of humanity, itself invited to rethink its place in the environment. It is through a dualistic vision that the artist carves and questions the consumer society with an unconscious certainly look but above all positive and hopeful.
Emeric Chantier begins his work by choosing objects that speak to all and using the elements which we can identify. The work is not meant moralizing but-provoking, meditative and re ective of the intrinsic link between the generational history of Humanity to Nature.
