Lysanne Larose

I've long been fascinated by abandoned buildings, rusted structures and the patina of decaying urban spaces, combined with a love of bright colors and material experimentation.

Les Métalliques are wall-mounted or freestanding artifacts that seem to have sprung spontaneously from post-industrial disintegration. Somewhere in a city, among old abandoned factories and alleyways littered with scrap metal, shards of glass and graffiti, something has awakened and come to life.

Les Métalliques was inspired by a rusty piece of cast-iron machinery found in the woods. When you don't know the function of an object, you're free to imagine others. The observer is thus invited to decipher this installation and interpret it in his or her own way.

Although I am first and foremost a ceramist, I don't hesitate to borrow materials and techniques from other practices. My works may incorporate bits of scrap metal salvaged from wastelands, broken glass from car garages, rock dust from the air filters of a stone carving workshop, and even silica gel beads from recycled packaging. Occasionally, I apply commercial flocking or graffiti paint - and always a dash of rebellious spirit.

A look at what you will discover.
