    HUGO SERVANIN

    Hugo Servanin’s work creates a resonance between the myths and representations shaping our bodies and the properties of the materials and technologies he uses. His researches were first focused on the existing bond between the body and its representations. He would exploit the inherent codes of sculpture work as well as those of the flesh: the defects of a molding were considered as scars. Later on, he started using moving plastic materials that symbolically brought to life the bodies he sculpted: rotting plaster marks the ending of life, and breaking porcelain infers to bone fragility.

    In Faire corps, we witness the birth of one of his Giants. All along the exposition, a body takes form, without it being possible to identify his gender, class or social race. The Giant is stripped from any kind of identity, he is free to choose.
