garance echazarreta


Inspired by the forms of haystacks, a mound of polyurethane tubes are tamed to become The Beast, a recluse in which to hide and be protected; one’s interactive presence helping it come to life.  Constantly on the hunt for new tactilities,

Echazaretta’s tests and interventions indicate a future where materials will have body, grit and guts.

It makes me think about the Groke or the Buka (Polish version) from the Moomins... who was freezing everything around her, hovwever, paradoxally, she was in a constant quest for the warmth...
