  • Description of the work

    Co'peaux (Skin-tree) is part of the Before I was a tree collection . The work deals with the look of the use of wood in the industrial context and of certain rejections which result from it.

    It is in 2019 that François Xavier Laloi realizes this work starting from a single wooden plank that he has completely reduced into slices to, subsequently, bring them together in order to recreate a tree bark.

    Here, the artist tries to find a semblance of naturalness in a purely artificial composition.

    This is a unique piece produced in 1 single copy.
