Description of the work
The work Impacts III is part of the Lances-Pierres collection . This work questions energy and impact. It reflects the observation of a certain inner violence of the artist, a need to let off steam by practicing a shooting sport. Here, the artist chooses a slingshot which, according to him, refers to a figure of childhood and of a toy.
It was in 2017 that François Xavier Laloi created this piece with the intention of transforming an element into a sculpture, by definition, thanks to a work of modeling of the material. A transformation process that takes place remotely. It is a game where the artist lets himself be guided by a design tool leaving a trace of the energy that is created from the impact and which freezes through the material as it dries.
This is a unique piece produced in 1 single copy.
