THE PIN–UP QUOTE: CLEMENCE SEILLES
Agglomeration is the key. I collect wood, various metals, minerals, representations of nature, and fake or recomposed fragments of nature developed by the industry for an urban world. Garden tiles are available as a product, but I also use various ‘poor’ building materials that I find on the street, like pieces of asphalt, stucco, or other leftover industry products. Even if these components have exhausted their regular use they still have wonderful expressions by themselves.
