‘Scrap metal transformed into birds, insects and fish of astonishing delicacy exhibition at Sladmore Contemporary from November 27 2013 until January 31 2014.
Edouard Martinet lives in Brittany, France, studied design at L’Ecole Superieure des Arts Graphiques, one of the ‘grandes ecoles’ in Paris, elite academies reserved for the most gifted students.
Martinet has now become the art world’s virtuoso insectophile (writes Gerry Farrell, Director of Sladmore Contemporary). At ten years old, a teacher introduced him to insects, leading to forty years of fascination with elegant tiny creatures, transforming bits and pieces of cast off junk culled from flea markets and car boot sales into exquisitely executed insect, fish and animal forms. He does not solder or weld parts. His sculptures are screwed together. These works have a graceful character, rather than the dry precision of a watchmaker, they glow with new life. Martinet takes about a month to make a sculpture, and will often work on two or three pieces at the same time. It can take up to seventeen years, when he is searching for just that one final perfect component.’
