Mastering the art of representing absolutely gigantic animals, French artist Quentin Garel has built a solid reputation across the planet thanks to exhibitions in Singapore, Venice, New-York and Montreal.
This time, from May 26 to June 3, the sculptor comes back to Paris to present his latest exhibition, Monumentalis. As the name suggests it, the artist presents monumental works exploring the infinite universe of the animal world. Keen on zoology, Quentin Garel uses bronze and wood, his favorite materials, to sculpt huge animals that, for their gigantism and the artist’s imagination, sometimes look like fantastic beasts.
So, a bird skull with three beaks and as high, a huge gorilla face or the gaping mouth of a sperm whale await you in rue des Commines, at the Espace Commines for the big works and the Galerie LJ for the smaller ones.
In addition to this sculpted bestiary, you’ll have the chance to admire sketches (huge too, and one of them even covers 11m long), real works of art that are impressive for their depth and their volumes.
Running for one week only, think about saving the dates of this fascinating exhibition!
